Turning Abingdon Pink


Against Breast Cancer, an Abingdon based charity, did a brilliant job turning the town centre pink. Many of the shops had a display. This is Fabulous Flowers.

This is Badgers Menswear. I was quite amazed at the common pink purpose that had taken hold of the town.

On the Market there was belly dancing by Ashnah. They have their own blog.

The Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers performed with non-traditional pink bows on their broom.

There was also a Cabaret by Janice Day. She sang some 1930s and 1950s songs very well.

She also read from her book 'Getting IT off My Chest' about her Breast Cancer and how it changed her as a person. Having read the first few pages of my signed copy I am very glad I bought it.

... There was a rumour that a convoy of pink cars were going to come through town. If they did come through I missed them. But there is one at least on The Harry Blog.

Congratulations to all Abingdon traders who participated in this eventy by decorating their window displays pink. I felt that it brought the town together in a way that we need to do a little more often.
