We Supported ‘Wear It Pink’ on Friday 23rd October

We raised £470 for Breast Cancer Now, the research and care charity

Wear it Pink

We’re delighted to report that all of our offices – that’s London, Bournemouth, Brentwood, Bristol, Croydon and Salisbury – wore Pink on Friday 23rd October in support of the wonderful work that Breast Cancer Now does in raising funds to invest in Breast Cancer research (nearly £250 million to date) and for providing care to those suffering with it.

We are excited to announce that we raised £470 to help Breast Cancer Now to continue its vital work.

Here’s a few pictures of our people supporting Wear it Pink, suitably socially distanced of course!

Why we chose to support Breast Cancer Now

 As Breast Cancer Now says,

“…breast cancer is still here. It’s still tearing apart the lives of families and it’s still taking the lives of the women we love on a heart-breaking scale.”

1 in 7 women in the UK will develop breast cancer but “we know that at least 1 in 4 breast cancers could be prevented and we want to find better ways to do this. But first, we need to know who is most at risk of breast cancer and what we can do to prevent them from developing the disease.”

To be able to do this, funds are needed, of course, and big fund-raising events like Wear it Pink are crucial £35 million has been raised so far, which is truly amazing. As Elaine Wilkins from our Bournemouth office puts it:

“Cancer has affected me personally and it will affect everyone in their lifetime whether it is a relative, friend or team-mate. It is vitally important to raise awareness of the importance of spotting the warning signs as early as possible, and to help raise the funds needed to achieve this.”

We’re also aware of how the charity sector as a whole has struggled for funding due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. So to put it simply, we’re delighted to be doing our bit.

Thanks to all of our team members and good luck to Breast Cancer Now and all charities too.
