Students use pink power to help raise £1,200 for breast cancer


PINK was the colour of choice at a Felpham school.

Students from Felpham Community College raided their wardrobes and proudly wore it pink to raise an impressive £1,200 as part of the national Wear it Pink campaign.

The event was organised by members of the college’s sixth-form charity committee, who all worked extremely hard to bring it together.

Lara Collis from the committee said: “As a school we feel it is important to work together for the benefit of other people and Wear it Pink day this year is just one of those events.

“Thank you to everyone involved and well done team Felpham.”

Students and staff were encouraged to donate £1 to wear non-school uniform, with the emphasis being to pink it up.

Cakes were also made and sold around the school to help raise even more money.

The sixth-form common room was decorated and a competition held for the best outfit was won by Dylan Grixti, Liam Silcock, Josh Northridge and Alice Hitchcock.

Wear it Pink is organised by the Breast Cancer Campaign

Held annually in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, supporters wear an item of pink.

Breast Cancer Campaign currently funds around 100 projects, worth more than £16m, in 35 locations across the UK and Ireland.
