  • Bodywise Beauty Salon

    Bodywise Beauty Salon

    We would like to thank everyone at #BodywiseBeautySalon in Bolton for their very generous donation to the Pink Ribbon Foundation.  To mark their 20th year of business Bodywise decided to create a big charity project and so ‘Bodywise Bares All’ was born! They wanted to raise awareness of breast cancer and how it has effected so many people, especially as they all had personal encounters through family and friends. They decided on a charity calendar with the proceeds being split equally between #BootOutBreastCancer and the Pink Ribbon Foundation to help the cause and give something back. In total they raised £3,728.13 to fight breast cancer.  The Pink Ribbon Foundation and Bodywise would like to thank everyone who sponsored, donated, bought the calendar and had a part in the making of it.

    Corinne and Naomi Smith

    A massive thank you to sisters Corinne and Naomi Smith who organised an Oscars inspired fundraiser for the Pink Ribbon Foundation in memory of their sister, Carrie who sadly died of breast cancer aged just 32 years.

    The party was heavily supported by friends and family and Corinne (a professional singer) and her step mother, Caroline, were among those providing the entertainment. Local businesses also got behind the event and donated prizes for a raffle and Glasgow Rangers football club donated a signed shirt for the auction.  We thank them for their generous support and think that they all looked like Oscar winners!

    Francesca, Bev and Julie

    A massive thank you to Francesca, Bev and Julie for organising a local coffee morning in aid of the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Lots of very generous people donated cakes and rather than charging people per drink/cake, guests were invited to instead make a donation to the Foundation to support our vital work. There was also a raffle, games and various other stalls – and a total of £400 was raised on the day to fight breast cancer!  Well done ladies and thank you for your valuable support.  (Thanks also to Elmswell Fire Station for allowing these lovely ladies to use their space to host their event!)

    BOYS vs GIRLS charity #SHOOT4PINK netball match

    The battle of the sexes was in full swing, as the University of Nottingham’s Netball Club took on the University’s Men’s Basketball Club in a BOYS vs GIRLS charity #SHOOT4PINK netball match!  Between 4-6pm the teams fought for supremacy at the University of Nottingham’s Sports Centre on Jubilee Campus and after an arduous battle the final score was 38 – 21 to the GIRLS!  Money was raised via the selling of pink ribbons, loose change in collection boxes and a very popular cake and refreshment stall. A total of £189.77 was raised with the money being split equally between the Pink Ribbon Foundation and the Evelina London Children’s Healthcare charity – both chosen by the two teams playing.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part and supported the event and we look forward to the rematch!  Twitter University of Northampton Netball Club

    Mike Salisbury

    Mike Salisbury (a teacher) and Joe Napthine (6th form student) took on sisters Chloe and Cindy Green (also 6th form students) in a fishing match with a difference, taking place at Churchgate Fisheries in Essex. In the past Mike has taken part in many fundraising fishing matches but when he was challenged by two female students, he thought that it would not only be a great opportunity to see who was the best at fishing: BOYS or GIRLS but it would also be a fun and unique way to raise funds for charity too! Mike and Joe raised money for “Casting For Cancer” (an angling-based charity who raise funds for Orchid – male cancer charity), and Chloe and Cindy raised money for the Pink Ribbon Foundation to fight breast cancer. Both teams did really well and the final result was: Girls 21lbs 2oz and Boys 44lbs 4oz. Well done both teams and thank you for raising money in such a fun and unique way – fishing – who knew!!!

    Rose House, Rossall School

    To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the film “Mean Girls”, Rose House (Rossall School) held a ‘Mean Girls Week’ to celebrate the film’s release and more importantly – to raise awareness and money for the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Inspired by the film’s famous line ‘On Wednesdays we wear pink!’ the girls bought pink ribbons and handmade ribbon badges, hair ties and wristbands to sell for £1 for students and staff to wear on Wednesday. Alongside this, the Rose girls organised a charity ‘Regina George’ inspired lacrosse match and a film screening of the cult classic. The girls threw themselves into the organisation of all these events and raised an impressive £424. Well done and thank you, Rose House!
