A-Plan Insurance in Thatcham wear it pink for Breast Cancer Now
Remember to wear it pink this October with A-Plan Insurance in Thatcham, as it joins the fight against breast cancer.
The windows and doors of A-Plan's office in Thatcham will look pretty in pink tomorrow (Friday) to raise money for Breast Cancer Now.
The insurance company, located on Chapel Street, will be turning all its windows and doors pink and displaying large QR codes that lead to their fundraising page.
The QR codes can be scanned on the mobile devices of passers-by for an easy and fun way to donate to breast cancer support and research.
Last year staff at the Thatcham branch alone raised £346 just from wearing pink while working from home.
This year though, all A-Plan national branches will be joining the fight and thinking pink.
Wear it pink manager at Breast Cancer Now Summer Kendrick said that the pandemic had a “huge impact” on the charity's ability to deliver progress and support to those affected.
She said: “We want to send a heartfelt thank-you to A-Plan Insurance for holding a wear it pink event and for their vital support during these unprecedented times.
“Breast cancer hasn’t stopped for the pandemic.
“Over the past year people have been diagnosed with the disease at a time when everything from treatment to screenings have been disrupted, making the support that we provide, and the hope our research generates, a vital lifeline.”
She added: “That’s why we’ve only become more determined to make sure we’re there to support people when they need us.
“It’s never been more important to wear it pink on Friday 22 October.”
The Thatcham branch will be having a cake sale, dressing up, and has the support of Thatcham mayor John Boyd, who will be attending the event.
It will even have a presence at Thatcham’s Friday market, with props and backdrops for a fun photo opportunity for a good cause.
