Dartmouth fundraisers wear it pink for charity
Dartmouth Apprentice, the only training restaurant for the long-term unemployed in Devon, is raising funds for Breast Cancer Awareness all this month.
And the team at the restaurant, housed in St Barnabas Church in the harbour town, will be getting into the pink for Wear it Pink Day on October 26.
The crew will wear pink t-shirts and wigs as they serve customers on the big day. It will be a big day at the restaurant as it will also be the Friday of Dartmouth Food Festival and the restaurant is hosting a special children’s event for families who love good food.
The Apprentice team will give a part of their tips during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to the campaign. They will also be giving ALL of their tips to the campaign on Wear It Pink day.

Apprentice floor supervisor Abi York suggested that the restaurant did something for cancer awareness as her stepmother Judy suffered from the disease. And Abi will be paying tribute to her step mum by wearing pink lipstick on Wear it Pink Day that belonged to her.
“I have wanted to do something for cancer awareness for a while,” said Abi – who is a former apprentice at the training restaurant. “It touches so many lives and it seemed appropriate to do something this year. Wearing Judy’s lipstick seemed the right tribute to her too! I’ve been bowled over by the support I’ve had from the rest of the team. We are going to have fun and I hope the customers get into the spirit of it as well!”
The team at the restaurant will be wearing t-shirts supplied by the Uncle of apprentice Tom Passmore. Robert Passmore, who owns Central Embroidery, heard about the apprentice fundraising from his nephew and decided he wanted to be involved.
“We are really pleased to have Robert’s support,” said Apprentice restaurant manager Nina Stanesby. “It will help us to raise even more for Breast Cancer Awareness and that can only be a good thing – thanks Robert!”
