Paint It Pink Events

This Friday (13th) and Saturday (14th), we're showing our love for Tameside by supporting PAINT IT PINK

Could you make or wear something PINK and raise just £2 for Tameside4Good?  Perhaps it's a pink suit, a fancy dress costume, pink make-up, a pink wig... or simply a pink t-shirt.

There are sponsorship opportunities too.  Do you have an idea for a sponsored event?  You can download a fundraising pack here, full of ideas and advice to get you started

To donate, simply text ‘TAME44 £2’ to 70070 on Friday 13th February 2015.
