Fat Friday Gets A Pink Make Over In Aid Of Breast Cancer Research

All Fridays are ‘Fat Fridays’ in the KDM Office but Friday 28th October had a pink make over in aid of breast cancer research, raising £100 for the charity in the process.

Cakes and cookies outnumbered people for a time, admittedly not for long, as the goodies were scoffed pretty quickly! In the great KDM bake off there was stiff competition from Katie’s fairy cakes, Caroline’s cup cakes and a Blog Writer’s chocolate and cherry cookies but the KDM winner’s medal must go to Claire for her excellent pink monsters!

Jo created a fabulous pink pig and everyone took part in a game of ‘pin the tail on the pig’ in a twist on more traditional ‘pin the tail on the donkey.’ The prize for which was a bottle of rosé (pink for those less well educated) wine. Though his tail was placed closer to the pig’s snout, Kevin definitely looked the best in the flowery pink scarf that was used as the blindfold!
Having accepted the challenge of filling a jar with pink sweets to play ‘guess how many pink sweets in the jar’ game Katie actually delegated the task to her younger sister so she could have the chance of winning the jar of pink sweets! Her plot succeeded as she guessed 124 sweets which came closest to the 133 contained within the jar. Katie made a ‘Brownie promise’ that she didn’t cheat her way to victory. I’ll leave it to you to decide. Luck was clearly with Katie on Friday as she was also victorious in the ‘what’s next on the washing line’ game with her guess of a tutu!

In the midst of all the pink, cake, monsters and pigs let’s not forget what we did all the fundraising for. The Wear it Pink breast cancer campaign and the funds raised supports pioneering breast cancer research with the greatest potential to save and improve lives and, ultimately, find a cure for breast cancer. One in three people are affected by cancer at some point in their lives so we can be sure that cancer isn’t just something that happens to other people. Having been affected myself by cancer, a close family member was diagnosed last year; I’ll give any support I can to research which may, one day, develop a cure for cancer.
