In the pink for breast can­cer

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Halloween -

Two Mon­k­lands op­ti­cians cel­e­brated‘Wear it Pink’day ear­lier this month in aid of Breast Can­cer Now and raised £50.

The teams at Spec­savers in Air­drie and Coat­bridge all donned the colour pink and dec­o­rated the store in blush colours at the re­cent event and raised £50.

Funds were raised by dona­tions to char­ity buck­ets in the store and through the sale of raf­fle tick­ets.

The raf­fle con­tin­ued for one week with one lucky ticket picked to win a pair of de­signer frames from Spec­savers.

Breast Can­cer Now is the UK’s largest breast can­cer char­ity and is ded­i­cated to fund­ing re­search.

The char­ity be­lieves that by act­ing now, by 2050 ev­ery­one who de­vel­ops breast can­cer will live, but fundrais­ing is vi­tal to make it hap­pen.

An­drew McGona­gle, store direc­tor at Spec­savers Air­drie and Coat­bridge, said:“It was great fun to take part in Wear it Pink this year with ev­ery­one get­ting on board to raise funds and aware­ness for Breast Can­cer Now.

“A big thank you to ev­ery­one who do­nated – I’m de­lighted to be able to present th­ese funds to this very wor­thy cause.”
