On Friday 25th October Mactaggart & Mickel employees enthusiastically gave their support to national “Wear It Pink” day for the Breast Cancer Campaign, by wearing an article of pink clothing and making donations, as well as holding a bake sale which was well attended by employees and visitors from our neighbouring companies at 1 Atlantic Quay.
Some went above and beyond the call, attending work in head to toe pink, and overall the response was fantastic - our efforts raised an outstanding £250 in one day, which the company agreed to match, bring the total donation to Breast Cancer Care to £500.
Across the UK hundreds of thousands of people joined forces for wear it pink 2013, raising vital funds to help beat breast cancer. The funds raised in 2012 totalled £2.1 million, which is already funding world-class research across the UK and Ireland that saves lives, and the 2013 funds will allow the campaign to continue its battle to beat breast cancer.
