Rocking the green jazz hands for Macmillan
As part of this years Saint Patrick Day celebrations dress up in something green and help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
This is a dress down day with a difference
Macmillan Cancer Support are asking you to wear something green for the day at your workplace or school as part of Go Green Day. Macmillan wants to see a sea of green to commemorate Saint Patricks Day celebrations and to help raise vital funds.
All you have to do to is wear something green and bring a £1 to your workplace or school. So get your green thinking cap on, what could you wear? Maybe a wig, a hat, t-shirts, skirts, shirts, ties - you name it, you green it! Who knows it may even bring the luck of the Irish to your office or school!
Rob Turner, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in Sheffield said: 'Events like this are great anyone can do it and everyone can have fun raising funds for Macmillan together.'
He continued: 'Our supporters always have a great imagination when it comes to fancy dress and I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. People also hold bake sales, raffles or quiz to add to the fun of the day. And remember, for every £25 you raise – that can fund a Macmillan nurse for a whole hour. Macmillan nurses are a valued and trusted source of expert information, advice and support to people affected by cancer. Your support allows us to make a difference.'
So don’t be blue this week, go green!
