Special Event - Wear It Pink Day

October 2010

Today in school all the staff and children dressed up in the colour pink for 'Wear it Pink Day' to support the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Breast cancer research has made considerable progress over the past two decades and vital work is still underway. Past research has resulted in improvements in quality of life and survival. However, one woman in nine in the UK will be diagnosed during her lifetime. Each research project funded by the charity brings us a step closer to beating breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Campaign uses all wear it pink donations to fund innovative, world-class research throughout the UK and Ireland to understand how breast cancer develops, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure.

The charity currently supports around 106 projects worth £16.3 million in 38 centres across the UK and Ireland.

Thank you to all our families who donated either 50p or £1.00 towards this worthy cause. We raised nearly £80!
