Breast cancer now – pink day at fc cartons

– 19th October 2019

As last year’s pink day had been such a great success, we thought it would be a good idea to do it again!

All of the staff wore pink uniform, some added pink socks, sadly the Pink wig failed to put in an appearance this year but we have it on good authority it will be back next year.

This year, over 55,000 women in the UK will hear the words ‘it’s breast cancer’ and around 11,500 women will die from it. Research holds the key to a future where all that changes. A future where women don’t have to live in fear of breast cancer. A future where women get to watch their children grow up and create a lifetime of memories with the people they love.

A future where, by 2050, every woman who develops breast cancer lives.


David carried on the theme with the Derby Trailblazers, the Div 1 team warmed up for both their double header games playing Loughborough Riders in the NBL division 1 on Saturday, before producing an emphatic home win over Sheffield Hallam University on the Sunday. The supporters all embraced the theme and they held a Pink day raffle.
