Ladies pretty in pink along with the boys

Brighouse High School Sixth form students were awash with pink as they raised funds for Breast Cancer Care.

Organised by the centre’s charity committee, everyone brought in a £1 to wear something pink, as a variety of activities were held.

Bun sales, a pink raffle with donations from local businesses, Henna hand painting and office workers who had learnt how to palm readers were just a some of the entertaining events happening on Church Lane.

However, the highlight of the day was the pink catwalk which saw the boys don their finest dresses and make-up as they slipped on their high heels to parade in front of their friends and tutors.

Senior captain of the charity committee Chloe Roberts said the day really brought the Year 12 and 13 students together as they broke last year’s total.

“Sometimes their is a bit of barrier but all Year 12 got involved and we have all made some new friends and had a really good laugh together.

“The henna painting was really good well as the painting and designs were beautiful.

“We raised £414.62 which has beaten last year’s total.”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and pink days are used to raise funds for charities.

Breast Cancer Care combine the personal experiences of people affected by breast cancer with clinical expertise, using this in a unique way to provide information and offer emotional and practical support, bring people affected by breast cancer together, campaign for improvement in standards of support and care, and promote the importance of early detection.
