Residents and teams at our Lansdowne, Rochester, Edgehill and St. Peter’s Park care homes had great fun raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s ‘Wear It Pink’ Day on 23 October.

A lot of fun was had by everyone at the care homes who baked pink cakes, blew up pink balloons, decorated their lounges pink, made pink drinks, sold tickets for pink raffle prizes, and even wore pink wigs and feather boas!

And at our HQ on Portland in Dorset our Chairman Derek Luckhurst and CEO Raina Summerson judged a socially-distanced bake-off.
