NHS staff have raised more than £1,700 for two wards at local hospitals after dressing up in tutus and rubber gloves in a fundraising effort.
The fundraisers took part in a car wash in aid of Ward 18 at Scunthorpe General Hospital and The Pink Rose Suite at Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.
Equipment Librarian Sara Bentley, who works in Medical Engineering at Scunthorpe hospital, organised the event.
Ms Bentley said: “We decided to dress as pink punk fairies and wash cars for the Wear it Pink Day. We washed windscreens and held a raffle.”
“We are going to split all of the money raised between the two wards as a very close member of our family was diagnosed with breast cancer and treated at both hospitals. It is our way of saying thanks for the treatment she received.”
