A sea of pink at Roysia School

STAFF and pupils from Roysia School in Royston looked pretty in pink by raising awareness and funds for breast cancer.

Pupils were asked to come up with fundraising ideas for this months breast cancer awareness campaign.

And thanks to their ideas the school raised £249 with activities that included name games, cake sales, badge designing and a non-uniform day in which 220 pupils and staff dressed in pink.

Elaine Stamford of Roysia School said: "It's a charity that we feel touches the hearts of so many families. The school started its involvement with Breakthrough Breast Cancer a number of years ago and each year it develops into a bigger commitment.

"There has been a sea of pink around the school and it has made the pupils aware that every little can help a charity. They have done really well to raise such a sum."

There was more fundraising in Royston, when Anderson's hair salon in Angel Pavement organised a pink day in aid of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.

Staff donated their tips, wore cancer appeal T-shirts, sold special pink products and put pink stripes in their hair.

Salon owner Steve Anderson said: "This is the first time we've done this but hopefully we can make it an annual event.
