We are fundraising for Breast Cancer Now - 16th - 20th October
Wear it pink 2017
We raised a phenomenal amount of money with our wear it pink events in 2014 – it was totally unexpected. We were then recognised as a school for outstanding fundraising and was invited to the merger charity event of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
I think it was this that spurred us on and that night we pledged to raise at least £4,000 for 2015. We were then asked to take part in a photo shoot for Breast Cancer Now and after running my first ever gala night on top of our usual pink events we managed to raise £4,720.
It was at this point that I knew we needed to hit £10,000 in three years. Fast forward to present day and we have raised £10,358.16! Something that only a few years ago seemed impossible.
As we are now in October - Breast Cancer Awareness month, i am beginning to circulate the plans for wear it pink 2017. This year we were chosen to be one of the faces of the campaign and our adverts are popping up everywhere including my weekly magazine, the TES and also Jamie Oliver's magazine.
