BUSINESSES and students have been tickled pink to help raise funds for charity.

Sixth formers at Brighouse High School held a ‘Pink Day’ with a host of activities organised to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research.

Students wore fancy dress costume and any items of colourful pink clothing they could get their hands on.

Staff and students also held a ceremony to release a balloon with a name tag attached of someone who was close to them.

A special Brighouse High School sixth form X Factor-style talent competition was held with performers taking to the stage.

Bun sales, face painting and other fun games were organised throughout the day.

The annual event was organised by student charity champion student Ushna Shaban.

It was another successful fund raising effort by the sixth form with everyone getting into the spirit of things and raising £475.

Bon Marche in King Street also helped raise money for the charity as staff and customers participated in the washing line game.

People had to guess what item of clothing would appear next on a washing line with people making donations.

The store on King Street, Brighouse, managed to raise £48.50 from the pink event.
