Big Pink Day - Our Charity Fundraising Event At The Business Development Centre

By: Lisa Harper

Our team at the Business Development Centre had great fun on Friday holding a BIG Pink Party to raise money for Breast Cancer Care; a charity dedicated to providing support to those living with cancer.

The team all donated £5 each to come in non-uniform with the only specification being they had to wear one item of pink. They also got to enjoy a warm drink and cupcake as part of their donation.

Other cakes were also available to buy throughout the day at our bake sale; many of which had been baked by our employees. There was a fantastic selection of treats including tasty cupcakes, so nobody left work hungry on Friday!

To further increase their fundraising efforts members of the team had also organised games throughout the day. This included a 'Guess the name of the pug' game as well as a fabulous raffle with the chance to win a family ticket to Yorkshire Wildlife Park!

Stacey Dodsworth was the lucky winner of the Guess the Name Of The Pug – with the winning name 'Wrinkles'. Brad Gutteridge scooped the grand raffle prize the family ticket to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Ticket while 15 other lucky winners got their hands of some other great prizes, including wine, chocolate and sweets. 

In total the team managed to raise an impressive £502.83 – making this one of the Business Development Centres most successful fundraising event yet!
