On Friday 23rd October, the OAASIS Group office in Great Yarmouth turned positively pink for Wear It Pink Day and Breast Cancer Now.
Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity with a clear aim to stop women and men dying from breast cancer. The wear it pink event has been going since 2002 and is a great way to inject a bit of fun into raising money for charity. As the name suggests, we asked our employees to don their pinkest clothes for the day…
We also held a charity bake sale – always a popular choice in the OAASIS office! Our brilliant office bakers (and there were more than we thought!) donated a selection of sweet and savory homemade goods, with a few extras from the local supermarkets to keep the team going for the day. We were also lucky to have some amazing homecooked chilli for lunch with all of the donations going towards our total.
In addition to the very pink outfits and delicious bake sale, we also held an office raffle and a wear it pink sweepstake for a little added competition on the day. The whole OAASIS team enjoyed the day (especially the cake!) and we were even more pleased with our fund raising total for the day…(drum roll please)
