On Friday 21st October the Skills for Growth staff and learners took part in “Get Pinky” a promotional day which is part of the campaign “Stand up to Cancer”. It was great to see everyone getting involved in raising money and awareness about this disease.

As October was also Breast Cancer Awareness Month Skills for Growth took this as an opportunity to join in and pledge their support. With around 2,800 women being diagnosed with breast cancer each year it’s vital that as much research and funding is provided as possible.

With this in mind the Skills for Growth staff spared no expense when it came to promoting the day by wearing pink. From feather boas to groovy sunglasses the Skills for Growth team were spoilt for choice. Throughout the day numerous activities were held across the three main sites Woolwich, Stratford and Bexleyheath.

Among the activities taking place was a selfie competition with the best selfie taking home a fabulous prize. We also organised a raffle and a bake sale which gave the learners the chance to showcase their creative baking skills.

Overall Pink Friday was a big success and Skills for Growth would like to say thank you to everyone who took part. Roll on the next Pink Friday!
