Kidderminster Girls' Brigade think pink for breast cancer
6:20am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
THE 1st Kidderminster Girls’ Brigade has been raising money as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink and doing a sponsored silence.
The group hope to raise £120 to mark 120 years of the Girls’ Brigade organisation.
The girls, aged four to 16, will also be selling pink friendship boxes and have taken part in a penny race to raise funds.
The friendship boxes cost 50p and are small boxes wrapped up in gift paper with a bow. Each one has a poem on it about friendship or love.
The penny race saw girls collect as many spare pennies as possible and put them on the floor in a row to see which team collected the most.
Girls’ Brigade captain Charlotte Strong said: “The company have supported the breast cancer campaign for many years and we have just continued the tradition as girls generally love the colour pink.
“Many members of the company both staff, girls and their families have known people that have been affected by cancer in one way or another.
“I lost my Dad three years ago to brain cancer so the company alternate our fundraising between the breast cancer campaign, Cancer Research and the Brain Tumour Trust.”
Friendship boxes are available to buy at Milton Hall Baptist Church. For more information visit 1stkidderminstergb.co.uk
