Stony Stratford will literally be turning pink this October, to support Milton Keynes Hospital’s Touch of Pink Appeal during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Pink bunting will adorn the high street from the first week in October, which has been sponsored by three generous local companies IDW Heating Services, Grayster Maintenance and DNA Communication and Electrical Services. More than Stony Stratford-based 20 businesses are on board, putting up pink window displays, holding pink fundraisers or getting into the pink spirit and attending the various fundraising events taking place throughout the month.

Cameron’s Brasserie will be holding a Simply Pink evening on October 3, serving a £25 two course meal and pink sparkling wine, with £5 going to the appeal. Then on October 12, The Cock Hotel is holding a Touch of Pink Floyd night, with local band Little Pig playing from 8pm followed by a DJ until 1am. The Fox and Hounds pub is having a pink comedy night on October 20 – so there’s something for everyone.


Let’s turn Milton Keynes a touch of pink this October!

The charity for Milton Keynes Hospital – Healthcare Charity MK – is urging the community to support its Touch of Pink Appeal by adopting a local breast cancer cause for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Local businesses, schools and individuals are being asked to go pink this October and support the appeal, which is raising £80,000 for a digital x-ray machine, benefitting local breast cancer patients. Already £50,000 has been raised and activities during breast cancer awareness month will play a huge part in the appeal meeting its target.
