Throughout the year we like to help out charities where we can. Making donations, sharing images, educating the workplace and those who follow us online. When we saw that the 18th October 2019 was going to be a charity day bringing awareness to another great cause, we just couldn’t resist taking part.
The occasion was to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer Now, a charity that aims to help fund a future where everyone who develops breast cancer survives, living a long and fulfilled life.
Merging with Breast Cancer Care earlier this year, they’re supporting nearly 450 of the world’s best researchers across the UK and Ireland, to try and make a better life for anyone affected by this awful disease.
We started our charity day, by arriving in our pink t-shirts (Compliance Manager Paula also opted for big pink heels) and getting everyone “glittered up” with pink glitter on their faces, hands, arms and beards. Then as the day went on, things got wilder! We had photoshoots with all the staff, a quiz was passed around (it was a lot harder than it looked), there were a variety of cakes dotted around, and we even had a raffle – Everyone loves a good raffle!
Overall the day was fun and full of excitement, finishing off with the fantastic news that we’d raised £161 for Breast Cancer Now. We’re incredibly grateful for all involved and their willingness to shed light on a cause that desperately needs more attention. In particular, we want to say thank you to our very own Mortgage Administrator Kayleigh Steward, whom without we wouldn’t have had this brilliant day.
