Paint it Pink 2018

Tuesday 8 May - Saturday 12th May is Tameside 4 Good’s annual #PaintedPink campaign. We're asking schools, community groups and businesses to make a pink splash to raise some cash for Tameside 4 Good.

This year we’re aiming for #PaintedPink18 to raise £10,000. We’re setting the challenge of getting 100 businesses, schools and community groups to each raise £100!

Will you wear something pink, jump in a bath of pink jelly or organise a pinkathon and make a donation of £2 to Tameside 4 Good?
