In the Pink 

Highworth high street traders raise even more money for charity
The traders in Highworth high street have been at it again - raising more money for charity.
This time Breast Cancer Awareness was the beneficiary as shopkeepers and staff dressed up in pink all day, with those taking part including Highworth Post Office, Brooks's Bakery, Highworth Physiotherapy, Bloomfield's Delicatessan, Sally's Coffee Shop and the Highworth Emporium.

Hairdresser Emma Blake from Two's Company even agreed to have her hair shaved off on the day, raising an amazing 900 in the process.
"It's been a fantastic effort by everyone," said Maria Gomez of Cancer Research UK. "It's been a brilliant day for the charity."
In 2006, a saucy calendar featuring stripped-off personalities from Highworth high street raised nearly 10,000.
"We're always up for a laugh if it's in a good cause," said Jane Allen, manager of Brooks's, who also recently climbed Ben Nevis in aid of Alzheimers.
