Wear it Orange
Our 'Wear it Orange" day is a simple, fun and colourful way to help raise funds to prevent breast cancer.
Do you work in an office? Brighten up a dreary Monday in winter and get everyone to dress in orange, who could fail to have a cheery Monday after that?! Challenge your team to be the best dressed!
Are you a fitness fan? Get fellow gym goers and golf partners to dress up in orange and bathe not only in the glow of all that orange, but the warmth of knowing you're doing something positive to help prevent breast cancer.
Do you teach in a school? Kids love to dress up and it won’t disrupt the school day. Make sure you request a fundraising pack which includes stickers and a certificate template.
Do you just fancy doing something fun with friends and family? Hold an orange dinner party or make a regular family get together more colourful by making everyone wear orange!
