Suppliers and customers noticed something different about the AnTech team last Friday as they wore pink to support ‘Wear It Pink’ Day, a national campaign to raise funds for Breast Cancer Now.
As well as wearing a whole spectrum of pink shades, the AnTech team also held a pink raffle with local companies’ kindly donating prizes, children’s toys and a homemade Mary Berry’s White Chocolate Cheesecake to take home – who could resist?
AnTech’s team of keen bakers also took to their kitchens and created fabulous pink sweet treats including cheesecakes and cupcakes to sell on the day.
Isca Forwarding and Parker Bell, both located in the Newbery Business Park also joined in with the fundraising pink spirit as they dressed up and held a pink raffle.
Jennifer Bentley, Head of Engineering and Production said “It’s such an important cause, something that’s very close to all of us. It was a great day, everyone got involved, from baking cakes, donating raffle prizes, eating pink treats and also wearing pink! I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at AnTech, Isca Forwarding, Parker Bell and the business park for their support”.
The day was a great success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. From all of the fundraising efforts, AnTech, Isca Forwarding and Parker Bell together raised £330 for the charity.
Wear it pink is the UK’s biggest and pinkest fundraiser and since 2002, more than £27 million has been raised for ground-breaking breast cancer research. In addition this year saw some of the UK famous landmarks including the Trafalgar Square fountains, HMS Belfast and Cornwall’s Eden Project turned pink for the fundraising campaign.
