Staff at a Preston college were tickled pink with the response to their latest task.
Veterinary students and tutors at Myerscough College swapped their traditional classroom attire, donning themselves in pink from head to toe.
They were supporting the Breast Cancer Campaign’s ‘Wear it Pink’ initiative.
The annual event sees people wearing something pink for one day to raise cash for research. Around 50 members of the group got involved this year, supporting the campaign by dressing up and raising money around campus.
The ‘Wear it Pink’ day is part Breast Cancer Campaign’s major fundraising drives to support projects that have an impact on the lives of sufferers, and ultimately find a cure to Breast Cancer, the most common form of cancer in the UK today.
Assistant head of veterinary nursing at the Bilsborrow campus , Lynne Kerrigan, said the issue has close links to many students and staff.
She said: “Breast Cancer is a charity very close to our hearts in veterinary nursing so I asked my students if they would support
‘’They really got into the spirit of the day and I’m so pleased so many of them have got involved.”
She added: “Next year I’m hoping even more will get involved and raise much more for such an important cause. Well done, everybody!’’
Despite recent advances, breast cancer is still the most common cancer, claiming the lives of thousands of men and women and 50,000 more are diagnosed.
