Business students turned themselves and the college pink to raise more than £500 for the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven in Worcester.
The students spent weeks planning the fundraiser, organising charity materials, preparing flyers to advertise around the college and contacting local businesses to help with raffle prizes. On the day students were able to dress in pink and buy pink cakes, while the hair and beauty students got involved by painting fingers, faces and hair pink!
Chris Kimberlin, Business and AAT lecturer at Kidderminster College, said, “I am extremely proud of the effort and enthusiasm the students put into this event. It was an excellent opportunity for students to put into practice the theory of event management and support such a worthwhile cause at the same time.”
The Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven provides a wide range of free services, from advice about money and work, combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, to advice on healthy eating and exercise in a relaxing, secure and therapeutic environment. Specialist nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisers are in the unit to offer practical, emotional and physical support.
Lexi Craigie, fundraising manager at the Worcestershire Breast Care Unit, said: “It was a truly fantastic effort from everyone who was involved in organising and taking part in the Pink Day. It was great to see so many people getting their nails, faces and hair turned pink in support of the charity and an incredible amount of money has been raised. A huge well done and thank you to Kidderminster College.”
