Pretty in Pink

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.
