Local hospital raises over £300 for Breast Cancer Campaign's wear it pink day!

October 2010

On Friday 29 October, hospital staff paid £2 to wear something pink for the day and patients, visitors, consultants and secretaries visited the stand in reception to buy pink cup cakes and raffle tickets and give cash donations. The total amount raised included the sale of 112 cakes and 765 raffle tickets with all donations going to charity Breast Cancer Campaign.

The raffle was drawn on 1st November by Alex Edghill, Breast Care Nurse Specialist and Teresa Bowyer who works with Alex and in the hospital X-Ray department. The winner was one of the hospital’s out-patient nurses, Tricia Wilson.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer and one woman in nine will be affected by it during her lifetime in the United Kingdom. All the money raised from Wear It Pink Day will help to beat breast cancer by funding innovative world-class research to understand how breast cancer develops, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure.

Hospital Director, Mark Gilmour said: “Spire Hartswood Hospital provides breast screening, diagnostic tests and treatment, including chemotherapy and breast reconstruction, to women in Brentwood, Billericay and surrounding areas. In September we raised nearly £500 for MacMillan Cancer Support. Once again staff and patients have been generous and we are pleased that we can support Breast Cancer Campaign’.
