A CHARITY-minded shop in Bulwell town centre looked pretty in pink when it raised money for research into breast cancer.

The Breast Cancer Campaign stages an annual ‘Wear It Pink’ day as its major fundraising initiative.

Among the event’s supporters was the Bon Marche ladies’ clothes store on Main Street, Bulwell.

Staff wore pink for the day, gave away pink balloons and decorated the venue in the vivid colour.

They also sold Breast Cancer Campaign pin-badges, shifting 100 to help the store raise £112 for the cause.

Assistant manager Sharon Bowley said: “We support the initiative every year, and once again, we got brilliant support from our customers. We do a lot for charity and they back us every time.”

The chain of Bon Marche stores across the country raised a total of more than £12,000 through the ‘Wear It Pink’ day.
