We raised £2756 for Pink Wig in Falmouth Week
The Greenbank team are proud to share that we raised a total of £27536.33 through hosting the Pink Wig pre event party at the start of August.
The event marked the beginning of this year’s Falmouth Week and saw nearly 1000 pink wig wearers make the walk down from The Greenbank, all the way to the Church Street car park, led by the iconic Betty Stogs and the Falmouth Marine band.
The pre event party, which was hosted on our very own private quay, was a place for both participants and their family and friends to enjoy the celebrations of the annual event before taking part in the Pink Wig festivities.
Our bar, kitchen, front of house team and pub crew also wore pink wigs for the special occasion. The teams raised the final amount by donating 50% of all food and drink sales throughout the evening as well as 10% of all cocktails from our special Pink Wig cocktail menu, created exclusively for the event.
Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Pink Wig night is not only an incredible way to raise awareness around Breast Cancer, but has allowed for thousands of pounds to be raised to support both vital equipment as well as research into cures and prevention.
Our hotel manager, Sophie Colston, shared: “We were over the moon when we found out about the final donation total. This is an incredibly important cause and we are really proud that not only we’re able to be a part of this amazing local event, but we were able to help the Pink Wig team raise the much needed funds to continue supporting those in need and raise awareness for this cause”.
The final amount raised by Pink Wig from this year’s event will help to continue support both national and local breast cancer related charities. This includes the Breast Care team at The Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro and Breast Cancer Now.
