Pallet track is in the pink
A Wolverhampton business that is bucking the recession with figures consistently in the black will be getting ‘in the pink’ later this month as their staff gets involved with the national breast cancer awareness campaign.
Pallet-Track employees at the national distribution hub in Millfields Road are taking part in ‘Wear it Pink’ day, on Friday October 26, which is the Breast Cancer Campaign’s biggest fundraising event.
Staff will be dressing up in pink and making a contribution to the cause including the fork-lift truck drivers who will be swapping their orange ‘hi-vis’ vests for pink ones.
Marketing Administrator, Elaine Andersen said: “Breast cancer can kill and many people are touched by its devastating impact. The ‘Wear it Pink’ Breast Cancer Campaign supports people touched by breast cancer and its focus is on Pink Science – a pioneering approach to breast cancer research that funds projects with the greatest potential to save and improve lives, and ultimately find a cure. Pallet-Track is a major employer in the area and has supported the ‘Wear it Pink’ day before. We will get people involved in a fun way to get across this very serious message.
“We are also encouraging each of our 75+ Depots of the Pallet-Track network across the UK to do their bit and ‘Wear it Pink’ with us October 26th is the tenth ‘Wear it Pink’ day and organisers are claiming everyone who gets involved is a superhero.
In the last decade fundraisers have raised more than £22 million to help save lives, and after this year’s ‘Wear it Pink’ day they hope to have boosted the figure to a £25 million target.
