There was more than a hint of pink at D&A College Arbroath Campus on Wednesday when both staff and students turned out to support the battle against breast cancer.

Since its launch in 2001, ‘Wear it Pink’ has raised about £2 million each year to help research into combatting 
this disease.

This year D&A College has once again supported the cause by holding a tea party at the Arbroath Campus, where students and staff got into the spirit of the event by sporting pink ear-muffs.

Various organisations held stalls and information stands to help complete atmosphere, among them: NHS, Angus Mental Health Association, Breast Cancer Awareness, and 
Relay For Life.

And in a unique show of support, in more ways than one, there will be a collection of unwanted bras to send to the women of Senegal who cannot afford such basics.

“Wear it Pink Day is about raising awareness of breast cancer, and helps encourage our students to take a proactive role in managing their own health,” explained Tatiana Zorina, D&A learner engagement team.

“It is also about stimulating our students to become effective 
contributors to society.

“Donating a bra is a small task; but for every tonne of bras recycled, £1,000 supports further research into 
breast cancer.”
