Crewe opticians goes pink for charity
11:06am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
A CREWE opticians will banish their uniforms for a day and think pink for charity.
The team at Crewe Specsavers in Market Street will be dressing up in pink-coloured outfits to raise funds and awareness of Breast Cancer Care on 9 October.
The charity is challenging colleagues, friends and pupils to take part in pink days this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
As well as wearing pink, the team will be selling candy floss and pink cakes in a bid to raise as much as possible for the cause.
Michael Elleray, store director at Specsavers Crewe, said: “It is shocking that so many people from our region suffer from breast cancer, and the disease has touched many of us in store.
“As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month we thought the time was right to make a stand for Breast Cancer Care and we hope that our customers will join in with us.”
One in eight people will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, and Breast Cancer Care is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to providing emotional and practical support for anyone affected. The charity campaigns for better support and care and promotes the importance of early detection, involving people with breast cancer in all that it does.
The store will be collecting donations from customers throughout October in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
