Sing your heart out at karaoke, watch the College’s netball and hockey teams battling it out, eat and/or bake a pink cake, or send a Valentines’ Day candygram, all for a good cause: Pink Week.
Organised by TCSU’s Women and Non-Binary Officer, Verity Marshall, Pink Week raises awareness of breast cancer and money for charities that support patients and fund research into treatments for the disease. She said:
I wanted to raise awareness for those who suffer from breast cancer and give a voice to all who may be affected. Encouraging the female and non-binary community within Trinity through supporting breast cancer charities and getting involved has been a rewarding endeavour.
On Thursday 8, join karaoke in the College Bar from 9pm, where you can donate to Trinity’s Pink Week. On Thursday 15 February, the Pink Week Evening Soirée, will take place in the OCR, 7pm-9pm in the OCR, with wine and canapes. It’s £14.50 pp via Upay.
This Sunday 11 February at 11:30am you can watch Trinity Women’s Netball team (pictured above) vs the College’s Mixed Hockey Team in a charity netball match at Old Field. There will be cake available for a modest donation – pink of course. Bakers are needed, plus volunteers for the cake stall. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let Verity know how you can help out.
Verity said: ‘Celebrating the only women’s sports team at Trinity is a great way to strengthen our community by supporting not only incredible charities but each other too.’
Any member of College is welcome. And if you can’t make the charity netball match then consider sending a Valentines’ Day candygram for £2. Staff, students and Fellows can sign up to send a candygram (delivery in College only.)
Pink Week was founded in 2014 by Nina Rauch in memory of her mother Dina Rabinovitch. This year, Pink Week supports Breast Cancer Now, The Leanne Pero Foundation, Maggie’s, and Future Dreams.
