Nviro goes pink to raise money for Breast Cancer CareOctober 7th, 2016 Category: Company News
On 14thOctober, we held a Big Pink Friday at our head office in Portsmouth for Breast Cancer Care – the only UK-wide specialist breast cancer support charity.
We were delighted to raise £325 from our dress down, cake sale and raffle prize draw. Nviro staff baked cakes and paid money to dress in pink, adorning themselves with sparkly crowns, deely boppers, wigs and cow boy hats. Our Regional Director, Mark Barnes, won the ‘Best Dressed in Pink’ award for donning his fetching pink trousers, shirt and tie combo!
Allie Moon, who works as a Bid Manager, says: “We were very keen to fundraise for this fantastic charity during Breast Cancer Awareness month. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Unfortunately it is a disease that has touched many of our lives in some way, whether it’s through a friend or loved one being diagnosed or through our own personal encounter. Every penny raised will help Breast Cancer Care to continue to support anyone affected by breast cancer.”
Fiona West, Fundraising Officer at Breast Cancer Care, added: “We’re so grateful to Nviro for holding a Big Pink event in aid of Breast Cancer Care. With the help of supporters like Nviro we can provide care, support and information to anyone affected by breast cancer. An estimated 691,000 people in the UK are currently living with a breast cancer diagnosis so there has never been such an urgent need for our support services.
We would like to thank our supporters who very kindly donated some great prizes for our raffle: Cable-Talk UK, Estee Lauder, K’s Wooden Crafts, Golden Light Reiki School), Love Snowberry, JM2 Support Services, Monica Kelleway and Elanor Clarke.
