The Australian Mining Review
Generating breast cancer awareness
REMA TIP TOP has donated more than $5200 to the Cancer Council as part of its 2017 Pink Roller campaign.
The Pink Ribbon inspired conveyor belt roller campaign saw REMA TIP TOP come together with its roller manufacturer partner, Hong Kong based RKM Rollers, to produce a bright pink roller distributed to mine sites that opted into the initiative.
Several thousand pink rollers were distributed to NSW mine sites as a result of the campaign, and the team is now looking to take the initiative to a national level in 2018.
REMA TIP TOP chief operations officer Craig Philpotts said the work on the 2018 campaign would be beginning immediately.
“By engaging the major mining houses, we hope to add one, if not more zeros to that donation next year,” he said.
“This money goes towards grass roots initiatives that benefit cancer suffers locally, and around Australia.
“The work of the Cancer Council is incredible, and we’re glad to be counted amongst its many passionate supporters.”
