Today is "Wear it Pink Day", an opportunity for people to be part of the cure for breast cancer. In order to raise money some girls from the office organised a Pink Day at my work. Everyone wanting to take part dressed up in pink and made a donation of £2 or more for the privilege of wearing pink for the day.
There also was a Pink Bake-Off, which included some serious judging for the best cake, followed by a cake sale and a pink champagne bar. I entered some cupcakes, which looked good, but that was about it, as the jam inside them sunk to the bottom and the icing tasted of cleaning products. Needless to say: I didn't win that competition, but at least I didn't come in last. I got rewarded with a pink rose and a wooden spoon for entering.
Although I didn't win the bake-off, I did win a rosette and a box of chocolates for "Best Pink Outfit".
All in all we managed to raise just under £250 today, which the company is going to match, so our donation to Breast Cancer Campaign is going to be nearly £500. Quite a successful day I'd say.
