Pink Week 2019!!
Pink Week is returning! If you aren’t familiar with our yearly tradition we spend a week in October raising money for Breast Cancer Now through various activities. The charity’s Wear It Pink day is one of the biggest fundraising events in the UK taking place on the 18th October. Since 2002 the charity has raised over £33 million for research to discover how to detect and prevent breast cancer at an early stage.
- We hosted a raffle with some brilliant prizes kindly donated by surrounding businesses;
- Everyone in the office dressed up in some fantastic pink accessories;
- And as a collective, the team aimed to walk 500 miles (and 500 more…) and ended up smashing that target walking 570.60 miles in 7 days!
The whole team managed to raise £273.96 from all of our activities and on top of that our Managing Director, Mike, matched all donations bringing the total up to £547.92! He says he’ll happily match all donations this year and has put a very optimistic limit on the matched funding of £5,000.00.
This year we’re aiming to beat that though, kicking off on the 1st October we will be pulling out all the stops to make an absolutely brilliant week and one to remember. All the team will be going all out with their pink attire, personally, I’ll be wearing a bright pink suit everywhere for the week, you won’t miss me.
