Pink Friday

I was busy baking cakes last night for our “Pink Friday”.  Everyone has joined in and I arrived this morning to a kitchen filled with all kinds of goodies.  We have pink fairy cakes, pink muffins, pink and white marshmallow flumps, little battenburg cakes, even flapjacks with pink icing, lots of chocolates because there is never a good enough reason not to have them!

The guys are joining in too and although none of them have baked anything, they are wearing various items of pink clothing and paying for the privilege! Any vistors today, expecting to be met by our usual attractive receptionist, will instead be greeted by someone resembling the wicked witch from Snow White.  Except this “witch” is wearing a pink hat atop a mound of pink hair and has a nose that would do justice to some film company’s prosthetics department – I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it!  I think she decided to have her own Pink Halloween!

The day has gone well and all the cakes are sold.  Word went round the business park and people just called in and bought cakes and raffle tickets – just amazed at the generosity of strangers.  Everyone it seems is willing to support this worthy cause which is just brilliant, it restores your faith in human nature it really does!   So a big thank you to everyone for today, I am now going to have a glass of wine and relax.

Wear It Pink

Friday 30 October will be “Wear It Pink” day here.  Everyone at work will be wearing something pink and donating £2 to breast cancer care.

We intend to bake and sell “pink” cakes and cookies, we will have a raffle too and hopefully raise a lot of money. It is a sad fact that almost everyone you speak to these days has either lost a loved one or knows someone who is suffering with this terrible illness. 

This year, most of the men in the company are taking part too and are already discussing what they can wear, do I still have that pink tie? Can I still fit into that pink shirt? But at least they are joining in to help, which is all that matters.  Hopefully someone will take some photographs and I will let you know how much we manage to raise for breast cancer care.
