£7,500 has been raised for Breast Cancer Awareness’ ‘Wear it Pink’ day.Urging their colleagues to wear pink to work, the team raised £2,500 in just 10 days. This was possible thanks to the generosity of staff, partners and friends who contributed prizes and purchased tickets for the ‘Pink Raffle’. The amount raised will be trebled by the company’s charity arm taking the donation to a grand total of £7,500.Cancer Research’s annual Wear it Pink day encourages friends and colleagues to join forces, have fun and wear something pink. Staff made a great effort, with flamboyant outfits and some very striking wigs. John Allbrook said: “Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women, and this year, over 50,000 women will be diagnosed with the disease.”
“We are big supporters of Breast Cancer Awareness, which does an amazing job in helping the sufferers and their families through often very difficult times, as well as helping women to spot the symptoms and get the early, critical diagnosis that could save their lives.”
“We were very pleased to have raised £7,500 to help them in their vital work.”
