Breast Cancer Now's wear it pink day is one of the biggest fundraising events in the UK, with this year's taking place on Friday 23rd October.

Here at Walls and Floors, we 'wore it pink' and organised fundraising activities throughout our working day to raise money for the cause.

By having a bake sale, playing pink-themed games and having a 'win it pink' sweepstake, we managed to raise around £200 to donate to Breast Cancer Now.

The organiser of our wear it pink activities here was Karen, and we asked her for a few words on the fundraiser:

We take part in 'wear it pink' every year.  I am always involved in any Cancer Research fundraiser as, like many of us, I have both lost close friends and family to the terrible illness, and also have had family and friends fight the fight and survive. 

This year in particular has been a tough year for us all; getting together (socially distanced of course) to raise some money and have some fun at work has really boosted morale and brought us all closer.  I am very proud to work with such kind and generous people.

Our photographer managed to grab some snaps of us in action. We all pitched in to help this worthwhile cause and made our efforts to support the charity in their aim to make breast cancer survivable by 2025.
