Breast Cancer Now are delighted to receive a cheque of £961.66 from Penarth local businesses including ACJ Properties, Boys to Men Hairdressers, Backstage Hair, Glass by Design and Foxy’s Deli.
Friday 20th October was “Wear it Pink” for Breast Cancer Now, a day where thousands of people come together in work places, schools, homes and communities across the UK to wear pink, raise money and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.
Locally, the fundraising was started by Alison Hajilambi, employee of ACJ Properties, shortly after recovering from Breast Cancer herself. Alison was keen to give something back to the charity that provided much needed support to her through her recovery from Breast Cancer.
ACJ Properties have supported the charity for the last 4 years with staff baking cakes and other treats in exchange for donations. In more recent years, other local businesses have also joined the mission. Head of Lettings at ACJ, Sarah Plumley said “Our customers and staff have been incredibly generous in supporting this worthwhile cause. It has been particularly heartening to have other local businesses collaborate with our fundraising efforts and we are delighted to have exceeded the amount that we raised last year. Thank you to all who donated and a special thank you to Boys to Men Hairdressers, Backstage Hair, Glass by Design and Foxy’s Deli staff and customers for helping us achieve this incredible amount in one day.”
