STAFF and residents at a Bromsgrove care home have been tickled pink with a themed day to raise money for a local hospice.

People at Breme Care Home, in Providence Road, donned pink to raise money for the Primrose Hospice.

The hospice supports patients with life limiting illnesses and their families.

The home raised more than £50 altogether, as people donated £1 to wear something pink.

Cupcakes were also sold to boost the fundraising efforts.

Activities leader at the care home, Helen Barron, said: “We all had such a lovely day – everybody was dressed in pink and there was great support from our team, residents and their loved ones.

"Even our gents looked dapper in salmon shirts and ties.

"The hospice is a charity close to all our hearts so we were thrilled to support the amazing work they do there."
