FOOTBALL and rugby players took to the stage in a sea of pink at Steyning Grammar School.
Students were taking part in Wear it Pink Day for Breast Cancer Campaign last Friday and raised £3,888.23 for the charity.
The day of fundraising involved staff and all students from years seven to 11.
Head girl Holly Ducket, one of the organisers, said: “This year, we have asked students to wear as many items of pink clothing as possible so we can create the biggest pink human photograph.”
The Sixth Form College 1st and 2nd XI football teams and rugby were clad in pink outfits to perform a dance medley for years nine to 11 students.
A-level dance student Hannah Mitchell, who choreographed the dance spectacular, said: “The dance took a week to choreograph and three weeks to teach the teams, training every lunchtime.
“It’s been hard work but everyone’s really enjoyed it. This is a really good charity and I wanted to try to make it a good event again this year.”
There was also a presentation on breast cancer awareness and a charity netball match
Assistant head teacher Sally Randall said: “The students all thoroughly enjoyed becoming ‘pink heroes’ for the day and raising money in aid of breast cancer research.
“They are also very proud of their role in encouraging fellow students to be ‘part of the cure’ in the fight against this disease.”
In February 2014, a similar day will be held at Steyning Grammar School to raise awareness of testicular cancer during the designated awareness month.
