The TSL office and projects sites were a sea of pink as we celebrated Wear it Pink Day, raising money for Breast Cancer Now, a charity that remains very close to our hearts. Our team wore pink and bought an array of delicious treat in to raise money and awareness for this amazing charity.
Finance Controller Sarah Hughes said: “I’m so touched that the TSL team have got so involved in celebrating Wear it Pink day. I volunteer for Breast Cancer Now to support individuals who are living with a breast cancer diagnosis. I’ve survived breast cancer twice even though the odds weren’t in my favour. I was so grateful for the support I received from Breast Cancer Now during both diagnoses.
‘Today is about recognising the journey for myself, women and men everywhere, and for celebrating the incredible research that Breast Cancer now are leading.”
Sarah was inspired to volunteer for the charity following the support she and her family received. She has previously been a buddy, offering anonymous telephone-based support for people living with a breast cancer diagnosis. She now facilitates a local workshop series for people who have recently finished treatment and are coming to terms with their new path ahead. The course is aptly called ‘Moving Forward’.
Not only did we fundraise for the life-changing research and support that Breast Cancer Now provides, but of course we celebrated our wonderful Sarah.
