County Durham Housing Group, Dale & Valley Homes and Durham City Homes have pooled their resources to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s ‘wear it pink’ day.

The combined efforts saw £824 raised through bake-offs, raffles and staff ‘dressing down’ in pink for the event.

Sarah Keable, County Durham Housing Group employee who took part, said: “It’s a scary thought but most people have come into contact with breast cancer, be it directly or indirectly, so it’s really important that research into this field is supported and continues.”

Wear it pink is a national event as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which campaigns for research into prevention and treatment – for more information visit www.wearitpink.org
