It’s pink and it’s fun! Pink Fridays raises money for people affected by breast cancer.
£2 pays for a headscarf set, helping to boost the confidence of a woman who has lost her hair as a result of her breast cancer treatment.
£52 pays for a personal appointment with our HeadStrong service to help women cope with the distress of hair loss from cancer treatment.
£132 pays to connect someone going through breast cancer with a trained volunteer who has had a similar experience to them and can provide one-to-one support and reassurance.

Why not use your pinked up picture to tell everyone about your Pink Fridays event?
Dressing in pink is the easiest way to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. All you need to do is wear a touch of pink to work or to school and ask everyone for a donation of £2. If pink’s your thing, why not go the whole hog with pink fancy dress? Dressing in pink is such an easy way to liven up your Friday at work or school and show your support.
- Why stop at pink clothes? Really go for it and get sponsored to dye your hair pink!
- Hold a pink themed fancy dress competition with a prize for the pinkest costume.
- Put together a pink dressing up box and ask people to make a donation to wear an item all day.
Need a pink outfit? Pop into Dorothy Perkins, our official retail clothing partner for Pink Fridays, on Friday 19 October when they are holding theirown Pink Fridays events in-store.
Audrey’s Pink Friday
We wanted to get as many people involved as possible and had a dress up day where people incorporated pink into their working clothes.
We collected donations and we had a prize for the best dressed person. We also had a pink bag full of wrapped up pink prizes. Everyone had to pay £1 for a pink surprise, which included pink feather boas, pink hair, pink bubble bath etc. Audrey Rankine, Edinburgh
For your Pink Friday why not do some baking for your colleagues - a lovely addition to your afternoon tea break. Or serve up some pink food for friends and family to enjoy. Don’t forget to ask for a donation.
- Ask everyone to make a donation to have tea and biscuits served by the boss.
- Fill a jar with sweets and play ‘guess the amounts of sweets’ in the jar. Get everyone to donate to enter. The person with the closest guess can keep the sweets!
- Hold a bake-off to see who the best baker is and then sell or raffle the treats.
- Add to your cake sale by asking your crafty friends to donate some handmade creations to sell alongside the cakes.
Joanne’s Pink Friday
We held a cake sale and raffle for our Pink Fridays event. Work colleagues baked or bought cakes for the sale, the centre piece was a fantastic cake baked by the wife of one of my colleagues. Joanne Petty, Cheshire
Throw a Pink Fridays party - a great excuse to get your friends together for some fun and raise money for a good cause.
You can hold it anywhere: at home, in your local community centre or even down the pub. Ask everyone who attends to make a donation and get partying!
- Hold a raffle or tombola. Ask local businesses or guests to donate prizes and charge £1 for a ticket.
- Hold a karaoke competition or dance off? Contests are a great way to raise extra cash at your party. Charge £2 to take part and offer a prize to the winner.
- Invite your friends over for a game of bingo, the proceeds going to Breast Cancer Care.
- Get your girlfriends round for a pink pamper evening. Paint your nails pink and indulge in a pampering session in your living room.
Jane’s Pink Friday
I initially decided to hold a Pink Girlie night at home with 10 friends as I thought it would be a good opportunity for us to get together, have some fun and at the same time raise money for a charity that affects so many women. We were all surprised at the amount we raised in one night by friends having a good time together so we were all keen to do it again. Jane O’Neill, Liverpool
Ditch your uniforms or suits and have a ‘Dress Pink’ day at work. Does your organisation have some budding bakers? Then why not have a bake-off or cake sale? Perhaps enjoy a Friday get together with pink food and drinks and finish with a quiz night. Try to get your whole office involved and use the posters in your pack to let everyone know about the event.
- Ask your boss to wear a pink apron and be on tea-making duty for the day.
- Photograph your colleagues in pink disguises and then get everyone to guess who they are. Pay £2 to enter and the winner gets a prize.
- Have a ‘pink up your desk’ competition. Compete as individuals or as teams. Pay to enter and the best wins a prize.
- Order some pink ribbon pin badges and sell them to staff.
