Tick­led pink at video suc­cess

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

IT took mul­ti­ple pairs of pink gloves and some en­er­getic dance moves for staff at Sir Charles Gaird­ner Hos­pi­tal to win $10,000 for Breast Can­cer Care WA (BCCWA).

The Short Stay Unit at the Ned­lands hos­pi­tal won one of three Med­line Pink Glove Dance awards af­ter sub­mit­ting a video of staff danc­ing and wear­ing pink sur­gi­cal gloves as part of a breast can­cer cam­paign.

Breast can­cer nurse Claire Kennedy, who ini­ti­ated the video, cel­e­brated the cheque han­dover with staff and fam­ily mem­bers at a morn­ing tea on De­cem­ber 16. All pro­ceeds from the video will go to BCCWA to pro­vide emo­tional, prac­ti­cal and fi­nan­cial sup­port to peo­ple af­fected by breast can­cer.

BCCWA chief ex­ec­u­tive Zoe McAlpine said it was an amaz­ing way to in­crease aware­ness and raise vi­tal funds for those who were suf­fer­ing with breast can­cer.

“I would like to thank each and ev­ery in­di­vid­ual who took part in this in­spi­ra­tional video,” she said. “With no govern­ment fund­ing, we rely on the gen­eros­ity of the WA com­mu­nity to pro­vide our range of ser­vices at no charge, so the money th­ese ladies have raised will truly go a long way.”
