In the pink for a good cause
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.
