Trinity students Joanna Sam, Mia Reeves and Isabella Gill have organised a range of events for Pink Week at Trinity from 1-8 February 2020 to raise awareness about breast cancer and funds for breast cancer charities.
Events include two sold-out Formal Halls with pink menus, a Pink Quiz on Monday 3 February in the College Bar and Café, and a Rose Delivery service for students, staff and Fellows at Trinity.
Joanna Sam, a Land Economy student in her final year, said:
Through spreading awareness of this disease and encouraging early detection, Pink Week aims to help to end breast cancer forever. Information booklets about breast cancer will be available in the College Bar.
Mia Reeves, a Modern & Medieval Languages student in her second year, said:
We hope that the messages behind Pink Week will reach all members of the College – Fellows, staff and students. We want to make sure that those who have been affected by breast cancer indirectly or directly feel they are supported by the whole College community.
All money raised will go to Pink Week’s charities which help those affected by breast cancer and their families. The charities are Breast Cancer Now, Teens Unite, Breast Cancer Haven and CoppaFeel. Last year Cambridge Pink Week raised over £40,000.
For the Pink Quiz on 3 February, teams of six students are invited to take part – the event starts 8pm in the College Café Bar; entry is £2 per person.
To send an (artificial) rose to a friend, fill in the Pink Roses form by Tuesday 4 February for delivery that week. ‘Be it Valentines, Galetines or because they’re an amazing friend, you’ll also be supporting Pink Week too,’ says Joanna.
