KIND-hearted staff and residents of Hatton Lea Care Home in Bellshill went pink for the day to raise vital funds for a breast cancer charity.

The group held their Wear it Pink day on Friday, October 28 raising £380.50.

Staff wore pink and paid £1 for the pleasure whilst those who were not brave enough to go bright forked out £2.

There was also a pink raffle at the event and almost 200 Cancer Research UK badges were sold.

BUPA who run the home will match the fundraising efforts of the staff at Hatton Lea.

Meanwhile, two local politicians also decided to ‘Wear it Pink’ to show their support for the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Richard Lyle and Clare Adamson, both SNP MSPs for Central Region, highlighted the cause by wearing pink at the Scottish Parliament.
