Sheffield Opticians Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
Specsavers in Sheffield turned pink on 17 and 18 October to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Care.
In aid of the charity, the team at Sheffield Specsavers embraced the colour pink as the theme for the two days of fundraising. Dressed in pink from top to toe, the team also hosted a bake sale and raffle with a host of prizes up for grabs.
Paul McGinty, store director at Specsavers in Sheffield, commented: ‘The charity provides invaluable support to victims of the disease so we were thrilled to support them by raising vital funds.
‘Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer and we’d like to thank our customers who came into the store to support our fundraising efforts.’
About Breast Cancer Care
Breast Cancer Care offers emotional and practical support to people affected by the disease, campaigns for improvement in standards of care and promotes the importance of early detection.
Someone is diagnosed with breast cancer every ten minutes in the UK, and one in eight British women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Thanks to an increased awareness and understanding of the disease, 85 per cent of people will now survive breast cancer beyond five years.
