In the pink for breast cancer
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.”
