For the past few years, the ladies and gents at the Head Office of Argyll Holidays have participated in the Wear it Pink event in October to raise money and awareness for the Brest Cancer Campaign.

This year, Hunters Quay Holiday Village decided to join in and raise some money too!

The whole staff team were sworn in to help and pink preparations got under way. In the week running up to Friday 25th October, raffle prizes started rolling in. There was everything from pink bubble bath and shampoo and smelly sets, to pink Smarties, rosé wine and pink bubbly. There was plenty of pink on display, and strips of raffle tickets cost just a £1 donation. By the Friday, there were also gift vouchers for a manicure, a facial and a massage donated by the girls at Quay Nails and Quay Treatments. Needless to say, we sold out of tickets!

Our resident fitness queen, Lorraine of Quay Fitness, also played a huge part in our fundraising event. She baked lots and lots of pink goodies including cupcakes, flapjacks, tablet and jam which were sold to staff all day in a bid to raise yet more money. And the snacks were a resounding success! Staff took rolling tea breaks all day to eat as much as possible. By the end of the day there was little more than a few crumbs left.

There was also pink themed fitness classes all week, and all staff were encouraged to Wear it Pink too, and donate £2 each to the cause for doing so. For those that opted not to Wear it Pink (mostly the boys) they had to make a donation anyway. Either way, everyone on duty on that day contributed, and it really was a great team effort.

Between the pink raffles, the bake off, the pink classes and the staff donations for wearing pink, a great sum of money was raised. In total, £287.15 was raised, every penny of which will make a difference in the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Well done and thank you again to all involved!
