A UK leader in the distribution of electrical supplies
This year’s antics were bigger than ever, with a BBQ, raffle and some questionable pink costumes we managed to raise a massive £1600 for breast cancer research.
Since the first ever event in 2002, wear it pink have raised over £31.5 million for the largest breast cancer charity – Breast Cancer Now. They believe, that with our help and donations it is possible to create a future where, by 2050, no women dies of breast cancer. Our donations help fund nearly 450 of the world’s best researchers across the UK and Ireland whose work helps prevent breast cancer and improve the lives of those affected.
The day kicked off with everyone showing off their best outfits, from onesies to police women there definitely was a few laughs around the office. The excitement continued as we set up for the raffle – with prizes ranging from a trip to Fort Amherst to a £130 champagne hamper the amount of raffle tickets brought was soon raking up.
During the day we asked the office to complete a questionnaire asking who they thought was the best dressed and had the most creative outfit. With many contenders, including Jo and Lindsay’s golfing attire and the group of cowgirls from downstairs, the winners were Will and Carole. Will in previous years has shocked the office with his choice of pink clothing – last year’s mankini is often brought up in conversation. Fortunately, this year he chose to wear a few more layers a won best outfit with his onesie and mask combo. Carole won most creative this year – a well deserved title. Every year Carole sports great fancy dress outfits - a nun being the most memorable, however this year Carole went one step further. With questionable pink fluffy handcuffs and an inflatable batten, this police woman sure stirred up a few laughs when she turned up to work.
By the end of the day everyone has had at least two burgers, run their wallets dry and left with a smile knowing that they day had been a great success in raising money for Breast Cancer Now.
