Painting the villages pink for cancer awareness

The villages of Milnrow and Newhey will be painted pink next month for cancer awareness.
Milnrow ‘Pink’ Hey is an extension of the Little ‘Pink’ Borough campaign, which runs each year throughout October to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Milnrow ‘Pink’ Hey is organised by Tracey Jacobs, of Tracey’s All Things Scents; Brian and Suzanne Gumbley, of Brian Gumbley Accountancy Services; and Kath and Andy O’Donnell, organisers of Little ‘Pink’ Borough.
The collaboration came about as Tracey thought it would be a good idea to turn the villages pink and wanted to fundraise in her late mother Bridie Jacobs’ memory who sadly died of cancer earlier this year.
All shops and businesses are invited to become involved by creating a pink window display, and providing a charity box and poster (supplied by the organisers).
A prize is available for the best window display, which will be judged by an independent (date to be confirmed).
Suzanne said: “The event will hopefully raise money, bring the community together and raise some smiles in the process.”
The event will be sponsored by Brian Gumbley Letting Services Ltd.
Any businesses wishing to participate can email Tracey to confirm so a pack can be sent out.
