Every year we like to help out where we can by taking part in various charity days. 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 jumped at the chance to raise even more money.
The occasion was to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer Now, a charity who in merging with Breast Cancer Care earlier this year, aims to help fund a future where everyone who develops breast cancer survives, living a long and fulfilled life.
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.
Our charity day started with everyone arriving in pink t-shirts (Compliance Manager Paula also opted for big pink heels) and getting covered with pink glitter on their faces, hands, arms and beards. As the day went on, things got even crazier!
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 around the office, and we even had a raffle – Who doesn’t love 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 amazing day.
