Dress Pink

Pay in

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 and 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.

Ideas

  • 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.

3790 Gillian Thomson's Pink Friday, Erskine

35 women dressed in pink squeezed into Gillian’s house for her Pink Friday! They came not only to raise money for a great cause, but also to celebrate with her. Gillian was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 37. The party gave me closure on an 'eventful ' year and also gave me an opportunity to thank my amazing friends, family, neighbours and workmates for all their support over the past 12 months.

Eat Pink

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.

Ideas

  • 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.

 

3791 Judy Lyon's Pink Friday, Lincolnshire

Judy held a Pink Sunday Tea Party. All her friends joined in wearing pink; one came in her pink pyjamas and dressing gown! They also had several games to raise further money such as guess how many petals on the flowers (which were pink of course), a pink quiz and a pink raffle.

Party Pink

Pay in

2491 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!

3802

Ideas

  • 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 O'Neill's Pink Friday, Merseyside

Jane had her annual ‘Tickled Pink’ girly party, she thought it would be a good opportunity for her friends to get together, have some fun and at the same time raise money for a charity that affects so many women.

They were all surprised at the amount raised in one night by friends just having a good time together and are keen to do it all again.

Work Pink

Pay in

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.

Ideas

  • 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

Alison Reed's Pink Friday, Birmingham

We held a Pink Friday at Serco Occupational Health. Everyone was invited to wear something Pink.  It was £1 to wear pink and £2 to not wear pink!! We also held a tombola on the day which proved to be a great success. Everyone donated prizes and great fun was had on the day.
