A Bradley Stoke nursery turned pink for the day on Friday 20th October as staff and children took part in a number of colourful activities to raise funds for breast cancer research.
Happy Days Nursery, located within the Almondsbury Business Centre off Woodlands Lane, was one of thousands of organisations around the UK that supported ‘wear it pink’ day, an annual initiative promoted by national charity Breast Cancer Now.
The nursery chose to take part because one member of staff is a breast cancer survivor and many of the families whose children attend have been affected in some way by the disease.
As well as dressing in pink, children took part in a number of pink-themed activities including pink painting, pink water play, pink potato printing, pink cake baking and pink dough modelling.
Money was also raised through the sale of crocheted miniature pink ‘love hearts’.
Nursery manager Emma Pearse commented:
“We had such a fantastic response to our Pink Day here at Happy Days Bradley Stoke. All the staff and children dressed up in pink and had lots of fun joining in all our pink-themed activities. A big thank you to everyone who donated the £1 to participate on the day, helping us to raise over £40.”
