Our colleagues recently took part in raising money for the Wear it Pink campaign on October 19 in support of co-workers Keeli Morgan, Maintenance Surveyor/Energy Assessor and Michelle Llewellyn, Group Engagement Coordinator, who were both diagnosed with breast cancer in the past 12 months.
Raising an amazing £300 for Breast Cancer Now, colleagues got involved with the fundraising fun by wearing something pink, taking part in a pink-themed quiz, purchasing tasty treats from our bake sale plus a variety of other activities across the day. All of this was made possible from the hard of work of Keeli and Michelle who put together all of the events themselves.
Keeli said: “I love how many people have come together by baking and helping to raise some funds today for a cause that is close to our hearts (literally). “Thank you to everyone that purchased items from the Marks and Spencer campaign that we’re involved in too, it really means a lot.”
Michelle added: “Some of you may have seen that Keeli and I have been lucky enough to have been chosen to support the Breast Cancer Now campaign in partnership with Marks and Spencer, and I can confirm that yes, that is us on the posters in the stores, and yes, I did say knickers on BBC Radio Wales!”
By 2050, Breast Cancer Now believes that everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and live well, if we continue to act now. Breast cancer affects both men and woman and will have a much more positive outcome if caught early on, so make sure you check yourself regularly and know what to look out for. Find out more here.
