Tickled pink at video success
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.”
