Graysford Hall care home in Leicester hosted a heartwarming, vibrant event on Monday the 28th of August to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Now.
All team members and residents of the care home were dressed in the finest shades of pink, coming together for an afternoon of solidarity and support.
The atmosphere at Graysford Hall was a vivid mixture of pink hues, as residents and staff embraced the “Pink Day” initiative to show their unwavering support of breast cancer awareness.
The highlight of the day was a spirited, pink-themed quiz that challenged everyone’s knowledge of the colour pink. Residents, staff and visitors eagerly participated, learning and sharing fascinating facts about the significance of the colour pink.
Graysford Hall’s Pink Day was not just about enjoying the aesthetics of the colour pink but also served as a reminder of the importance of breast cancer awareness and early detection. Breast Cancer Now, a prominent charity dedicated to fighting breast cancer, was the focal point of the event, with donations being collected to support their invaluable work.
Angela, a resident at Graysford Hall, said: “Everyone looked so lovely and bright in their pink outfits. It was great to see everyone having a lovely time whilst helping to raise money for a good cause.”
Graysford Hall’s Wellbeing Lead, Sarah Hatfield, said: “We were thrilled to have hosted such a wonderful Pink Day at Graysford Hall. It was heartwarming to see our residents and staff come together in support of Breast Cancer Now. The event was not just about wearing pink; it was about spreading awareness, offering support and celebrating life”.
Overall, the care home raised £256.18 for Breast Cancer Now.
