Homebuilder staff look pretty in pink to raise awareness for breast cancer
The site team at the Kingsbrook development on Broughton Crossing in Aylesbury will be dressing to impress by switching out their usual hard hats and high visibility jackets for bright pink hats and vests to do their bit for the wear it pink campaign.
Over £31.5 million has been raised by wear it pink supporters since it began in 2002. The charity helps towards funding cutting edge research across the UK and Ireland to help find a cure for breast cancer at all stages. This year, campaigners hope to raise even more through businesses, schools and individuals wearing it pink.
Every day more than 140 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. The money raised will help the 50,000 women and 350 men diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK.*
Glenn Copper, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes, said: “We are very happy to be supporting wear it pink for breast cancer awareness and I know our construction team will have a lot of fun getting to wear pink PPE for the day.
“We’re taking part in the fantastic campaign to supporting those suffering with breast cancer and hopefully do our bit towards raising awareness.
“It is very important that as a leading housebuilder we are getting involved and supporting charities like this. We hope that our contribution to the Breast Cancer Campaign can help to make the day even bigger and better than last year and raise money to help us get closer to beating breast cancer altogether.”
