Pretty in pink for charity fundraiser at park’s cafe

CUSTOMERS of an Aldwick café were spoilt for choice when it raised money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

 

As part of Big Pink Day last Friday, West Park Café was transformed into a pink haven dedicated to raising money for the charity.

 

Ann Hancock, who runs the café, was pleased with the £301 raised. She said: “It’s been such a fabulous day. We’ve been busy non-stop. There were people queueing up at 8.30am to come in.

 

“Lots of regulars have paid us a visit, as well as new faces.

 

“Breast Cancer Awareness is such a worthy cause, I’m so grateful to the owners of the café, ISS Lifestyle, for letting us do this.”

 

As well as selling cakes donated by customers, there was a raffle available, a game of pink bingo and the chance to win a huge bottle of Champagne.

 

Regular customers Diana Wooldridge and Arlene Wilmers enjoyed the treats on offer.

 

Diana said: “They’ve made a really nice effort.

 

“I’m glad it’s about raising awareness of the cancer in women and men as it affects both.”

 

Arlene agreed. “It’s always really bright and friendly in here but today is even more so.

 

“We were disappointed when the café closed earlier this year. Now it’s running again we love coming here.”
