For 25 years the pink ribbon has been symbolic of the support offered by Breast Cancer Care and the strength and inspiration of the people it has helped.
On Saturday 28th October we attended The Big Pink Afternoon Tea at Banners Gate Community Church in Sutton Coldfield.
The event was organised by Gilly Flower, whose daughter Vickie McHugh is currently undergoing chemotherapy so what better way to show her support than to raise money for a charity so close to their hearts. Gilly’s Friend Kim Scrivener also helped with organising the event along with Nat Scrivener , Vickie and her Best friend Leanne G who supported them with raffle prizes, auction items and collections and raffle ticket sales at her pub The Angel in Lichfield.

Linda Heeley Director of Pink Hair Solutions and Sheila Coleman, pictured below, attended the afternoon tea and said what a fantastic and well organised event it was and what pleasure it was to be a part of. Gilly has since informed us that they raised a grand total of £3000.00 for Breast Cancer Care.
At Pink we offer a confidential and friendly service to ladies who are going through chemotherapy and want to know more about the wigs and hairpieces that are available. We can provide support throughout your treatment with wig maintenance and hair growth advice and our highly experienced stylists can discuss any concerns you might have during your consultation. To book an appointment please call us today on 0121 350 3826.
