EXAMINER staff were in the pink to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.
The newspaper staff took part in the nationwide Wear It Pink day yesterday and turned out in pink wigs, T-shirts, trousers, skirts, gloves and underwear.
In addition, pink buns and pink ribbon badges were on sale and there was a pink quiz.
The Examiner gave 10p for every item of pink clothing worn by staff and the event raised £275 for the Breast Cancer Campaign.
The campaign's national events manager, Samantha Campbell, said: "Increasing research into breast cancer is vital, as one woman in nine will develop it in the UK. This means about 40,470 women face a diagnosis of breast cancer every year.
"Men, too, can develop breast cancer. They account for 240 new cases and 90 deaths a year in the UK."
Last year's Wear It Pink day raised more than £600,000.
