Welcome to Pink Events Charity
We are beyond proud to announce that Sarah Pattinson, founder of Pink Events has been nominated for The Sue Ryder Yorkshire Woman of Achievement Award.
Sarah has put her heart and soul into Pink Events to make it the successful charity it is today. I’m sure you will all join me in wishing Sarah the very best of luck.
The awards take place on Friday 18th May at The Royal Armouries. Tickets are on sale now through Sue Ryder.
With a legacy left to Pink Events by Janet Rhodes of Cookridge, we recently purchased a range of items for the Breast Care Unit. These included several framed pictures which will adorn the walls of the ‘Quiet Rooms’, in which patients are often given life changing news.
To further soften the rooms appearance a range of cushions have been provided to be placed on the sofas and chairs. These small changes alter the often clinical appearance and provide an improved facility for patient comfort and care.
Pink Events also purchased some books, these will allow patients and staff to assist children to understand and better cope with the adult’s diagnosis. The books have been written in a language that children can deal with and helps to guide them through the journey.
Marriott staff year of fundraising
The staff at the Marriott hotel in Leeds chose Pink Events to support as their local charity for 2017. They used their organisational skills to come up with a number of ideas during the year to raise funds for Pink Events. These events included bake sales, pamper days, a cycle challenge and a Christmas Craft fair. All the staff at the hotel took part in the various challenges and raised the magnificent sum of £1749.35 which was recently presented to committee members.
Many thanks to all.
2017 was an important year for Pink Events.
