Pinkalicious Taste at St Stephen’s

eskimosoup organised some pink break dancers, a human statue and a delicious pink bun sale to help raise over £600 at St Stephen’s to support a local breast cancer support charity.

eskimosoup on behalf of St Stephen’s held its second successive ‘Think Pink’ charity weekend last weekend. The event rose over £600 for Hull and East Riding (HER) Breast Friends, a local charity that offers support to individuals who are affected by breast cancer.

In addition to fundraising; the two day event gave shoppers information and advice about breast cancer. Shoppers were able to enjoy pink-themed cakes, crafts and gifts, many of which had been donated by retailers based in St Stephen’s including: Tesco, Starbucks, Heart Coffee and Reel Cinema. Entertainment included a rare pink-themed appearance from serial street performer Goldman, as well as show stopping moves from the Think Pink break dancers.

We spoke to Jim Harris, Centre Manager at St Stephen’s who told us “The Think Pink event is a colourful way to support a fine local charity. This is one way we want to support HER Breast Friends whom we know are determined to have fun, whilst fundraising for the research, treatment and welfare of Breast Cancer patients.”

Think Pink is an annual event that helps HER Breast Friends support local people who are suffering from breast cancer. For more information, please visit: www.herbreastfriends.org
