Sixth Form ‘Wear It Pink’ In Support Of Breast Cancer Charities

Princethorpe College’s charity minded Sixth Formers blitzed the school day with an array of pink costumes as the College celebrated its annual ‘Pink Day’.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and, with one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime, the Sixth Form ‘Wear it Pink’ to raise funds for the research programmes funded by Breast Cancer charities.

In true Princethorpe tradition, the Sixth Formers wholeheartedly embraced the theme, turning up dressed as pink pigs, fairies, cheerleaders and fluffy pink onesies galore. Every pupil in the school made a cash donation for the non-uniform day and the coffers were swelled by a break time cake sale. Pastel coloured cup-cakes and biscuits went down a treat, all in a bid to raise awareness of the women who suffer from this terrible disease.

Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Anne Allen, was delighted in the support students gave to the cause.

“We only have to make a suggestion and the Sixth Formers run with the idea, keen to make it as successful and enjoyable as possible.”

A special lunch time event caused much amusement amongst younger pupils as Sixth Form boys and girls dressed in pink attire and paraded down the cat walk.

“We are still counting but it looks likely that we will have raised well over £500 for the charity,” commented Mrs Allen. “For an end of half term fund raising effort, this reflects how brilliantly the College community comes together to support those in need.”
