Ingleton Wood signed up to Breast Cancer Now’s 'Wear it Pink' day which took place on Friday 21st October. It’s an event that everyone in the Practice located at all 5 of our offices could get involved in, coming together to help raise vital funds for breast cancer research.
Breast cancer touches the lives of millions of us in the UK. For every woman or man who develops breast cancer, there are families, friends and loved ones who also feel the fear and uncertainty the disease brings. 50,000 women and 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK.
We asked our staff to 'wear it pink' for the day and donate a minimum of £1 each to the cause and decorated the offices for a fun and festive feeling.
Thank you to all our staff that participated and brightened up the Practice. We’re pleased to announce we raised over £300 for breast cancer research. Breast Cancer Now use the money raised to fund world-class research, by the brightest scientific minds, across the UK and Ireland. They actively encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing helping their scientists and clinicians kick-start innovation. Their pioneering approach to breast cancer research trusts scientific experts to help fund the best projects.
