Suttles Went Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Suttles supported Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout October 2014, including Breast Cancer Care’s ‘Pink Fridays’ for the third year in a row, raising over £1000 through staff and customer donations.
Suttles’ lorry drivers and lorries were turned pink for the fundraising; office staff brought in cakes to raise money and had a ‘dress down’ day ; plus Suttles’ trade customers kindly offered donations as they collected their aggregates from Suttles’ Mannings Heath depot.
According to Breast Cancer Care , every 10 minutes someone hears the devastating news that they have breast cancer. Breast Cancer Care’s free Helpline and information-packed website offer a friendly ear and expert guidance to anyone dealing with the turmoil of this life-threatening illness. They also offer support across the UK with a range of opportunities to meet others in a similar situation, helping people every step of the way.
Office manager, Sue Holland, co-ordinator of Suttles’ fundraising month, said ‘sadly most of us know of someone who has been affected by breast cancer, so it’s a really worthwhile cause to support. Each year we’ve raised more than the previous year – so we’d like to say a big thank you to our staff and customers for being extra supportive this year! I’m also personally overwhelmed by the response of our customers at our Manning’s Heath collection site, who donated over £800 alone! We’d also like to thank Sign Images of Swanage for donating the lorry and vans’ pink signs, plus Site Safety of Ferndown for donating the pink hi-vis jackets worn by our staff.’
