Durham Duplex raise £230 for Wear It Pink

October 26, 2015


The Ladies in the Durham Duplex accounts department decided to take up the “Wear it Pink” challenge on Friday 23rd October and did a marvellous job raising £230 for the Breast cancer Now charity appeal.  They generated such a  large amount by fining people who failed to dress with a pink theme, taking donations from those that dressed in pink, selling pink themed cakes and also involving local businesses like the Sheffield Assay Office and Tool and Steel Products Ltd in the fun.

 The pictures show some of the Durham-Duplex staff all in theme, the coordinators with the cakes and Charles Turner,  unequivocally dressed in pink, handing over the donations from the Guardians of the Sheffield Assay Office to Louise Paulton and Hollie Grattan who had masterminded the event.

Louise thanked everyone for their donation saying ” This is a marvellous effort by Durham Duplex, the Sheffield Assay Office and Tool and Steel Products. The money raised will be used by Breast Cancer Now to further the aim of ensuring that by 2050 no one’s mother, sister, daughter, partner or friend will die from breast cancer.”

Well done Louise and Hollie!
