24 Oct GWP Packaging “Wear It Pink” for charity
GWP Turn Cricklade Pink in Support of Breast Cancer #wearitpinkday
Staff members at GWP Group each year join the thousands of workplaces, schools and members of the public for the annual “#WearItPink” day, supporting the Breast Cancer’s Campaign and biggest fund raising event. This year the team at GWP wore pink for the day on Friday 21st October, while also contributing donations to the charity in order to help crucial funding for cancer research.
Keeping it fun
This years event saw a variety of pink outfits walk through the Cricklade office door, it was pink shirt galore! Our favourites had to be the dashing onsies. Although not strictly pink, we were also graced with a visit from a Turkey, but with all proceedings going to a good cause we didn’t mind.
The staff at GWP raised a grand total of £85.57 this year, which was up by about £20 on last years donation.
Previous years we have seen a variety other extravagant outfits including robins, a pink suit and even a dinosaur with fairy wings!
Breast Cancer Now Fundraising
Every year Breast Cancer Now raises over £2million just during the Breast Cancer awareness month. The money donated goes towards research for the following key areas:
- Risk and prevention
- Early detection and diagnosis
- Secondary Breast Cancer
Every 10 minutes a woman is diagnosed with Breast Cancer
By discovering the causes of the disease, we’ll find ways to prevent it. By improving early detection and diagnosis, we’ll give everyone the best chances of survival. By developing effective new treatments for every type of breast cancer, we’ll make sure more women are treated successfully. And by learning to stop the disease in its tracks and control breast cancer that’s spread to other parts of the body, we’ll stop it taking lives.
