Wear it Pink 2016
Friday 21st October 2016
Breast cancer affects millions of people across the UK. Not only will the disease significantly impact the person living with cancer, but it will also affect their loved ones.
Breast Cancer Now, the largest breast cancer charity in the UK, has the sole aim to stop breast cancer once and for all. The ground-breaking charity was formed following the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Every October, Breast Cancer Now holds ‘wear it pink, a fundraising event created to raise awareness and donations for breast cancer. Each event month, wear it pink raises a fantastic £2 million just by the public wearing something pink and making a charitable donation.
The Healthcare Management Trust is proud to support this superb fundraising event, which is why each HMT facility will encourage our employees to wear it pink for one day only. Last year’s event was a roaring success, with our dedicated team coming together in the colour pink to raise as much money as possible for breast cancer.
Last Year at HMT St Hugh’s Hospital
In October 2015, the team at HMT St Hugh’s Hospital raised an amazing £1,615.80, all through staff wearing it pink, selling cupcakes and hosting a raffle. We also raffled off the top prize of a £400 bike to a winner from outside of our not for profit hospital in Grimsby.
Wear it Pink 2015 at HMT Sancta Maria
Staff at our Swansea not for profit hospital, HMT Sancta Maria, also participated in wear it pink, raising a brilliant £535 through bake sales, raffles and, of course, donning the colour pink. We could not be more proud of the dedicated teams at HMT Sancta Maria and HMT St Hugh’s Hospital who strived to raise a combined total of £2,000 for the event – and we’re doing it all again this year!
Wear it Pink 2016
We’re absolutely thrilled to announce we’re doing wear it pink all over again at our HMT facilities. The team will do their utmost to ensure we raise as much money as possible for the Breast Cancer Now event and, you never know, we might just beat our total this year.
Wear it pink really can make a difference. The money raised on 23rd October 2016 will be donated to a superb charity that strives to prevent women and men from dying from breast cancer. With the help of the public, the charity can continue to eradicate cancer forever. So, when you wear it pink, you will support the 50,000 women and 350 men who are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK.
