THE sky was filled with pink balloons in Birkenshaw as a nursery commemorated Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Helen Howes Nursery, in Bradford Road, released 100 balloons in the afternoon, while all the children and staff wore pink.

They raised over £600 by selling balloons and holding cake sales.

Owner Helen Howes said: “Everybody was really passionate about it and the children really worked hard baking buns to help raise money.

“The weather was perfect and the balloons went for miles. There was a lovely breeze and after a while you couldn’t see any of them.”

The nursery is continuing to raise money and anyone wishing to donate can by calling Helen on 01274 681643.
