THESE bright young women added a dash of colour to a day of fundraising with an important message.

Ellis Hutchinson, 19, organised the day at Affinion International in Portsmouth in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The day included a penalty shoot out, cake sale, raffle and sweet selling.

Her friend and colleague at Affinion International, Reah Goddard, raised £200 by holding an all-day sponsored silence.

Ellis was shocked to be diagnosed with the condition in October 2011 after her sister Abbie, 12, was diagnosed with it in July.

Her other sister Emma, 21, was diagnosed following tests, while her brothers Billy, 17, and Harry, three, are both carriers.
