Residents, relatives and staff at Cathkin care home had a day of fun and activities and raised more than £335 for the Breast Cancer Campaign appeal.
Staff and residents wore pink and made and sold pink cakes as part of their fundraising efforts.
Administrator Teresa Duffy and Activity Organiser Maureen Anderson, both of whom organised the day at the home in East Kilbride, said: “Everyone had such a great time. Our chef made a huge pink cake in the shape of the breast cancer ribbon and other people made pink fairy cakes that people bought to raise funds.
“We gave people manicures, including some foil wraps with the pink ribbon logo that looks very smart.
“Many of our residents have supported cancer charities for many years. When you move into a home, there is no need to give up your hobbies and interests, so we wanted to support, and join in with, their fundraising activities and we raised £338 in total.”
