Residents and staff at Queen Elizabeth Court, in Llandudno, have joined forces to raise money for Breast Cancer Now, a charity that provides research and life-changing care for people affected by breast cancer.
The staff organised a cocktail party and a pink raffle with prizes donated by local businesses for the residents. Everyone participated in a bra fitting service and even Team Leader Chris Roberts dyed his beard pink for the occasion. In total, the care home has managed to raise around £300 from raffles and donations.
Gary Carr, one of Queen Elizabeth Court’s Activities Coordinators, said:
Going pink was a really fun way for our Home to do something positive for a cause that we really care about. Some of our residents and staff have also battled against breast cancer themselves, so it’s a very personal and worthwhile cause for us. There was a lot of laughter during the week, so it was just what we needed.
