In the pink for a good cause

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

STAFF and pa­tients at BMI Bish­ops Wood Hospi­tal in North­wood have dressed up in pink to show sup­port for Break­through Breast Can­cer,

They also sold pink cup­cakes, made by an ex-pa­tient, in ad­vance of na­tional ‘Wear It Pink’ day on Fri­day.

The day aims to raise funds for Breast Can­cer Care, a lead­ing UK char­ity com­mit­ted to fight­ing breast can­cer through re­search, cam­paign­ing and ed­u­ca­tion.

The hospi­tal’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Fraser Daw­son, said: “I’d like to thank ev­ery­one who got in­volved and do­nated dur­ing the day.

“We hope the money raised across the UK will help fur­ther the re­search be­ing un­der­taken by the Breast Can­cer Cam­paign.”

The team at the hospi­tal man­aged to raise a to­tal of more than £400 for the char­ity and leaflets pro­mot­ing breast can­cer aware­ness were handed out along­side the fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

BMI Bish­ops Wood Hospi­tal has re­cently opened its newly re­fur­bished can­cer cen­tre, the Pin­ner Park Ward.

The unit has been re­designed to en­sure more com­fort and pri­vacy for pa­tients.
