Veolia raises £17,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign

Everyone from operatives to office staff, threw themselves into fundraising activity by donning all things pink, including hats, high vis jackets, wigs and T shirts. Sites also held pink fancy dress themed events and one contract manager dressed as Pink Panther for the day, all in aid of the cancer charity.

Veolia has been supporting Breast Cancer Campaign’s ‘Wear it Pink’ event since 2007 and in 2009 the company raised more than double compared to 2008.

The partnership with Breast Cancer Care forms part of the company’s commitment to playing an active role in the local communities in which it operates, this also includes giving all employees half a day to volunteer for a local charity.

Kevin Hurst, Marketing and Communications Director said: “We are delighted to be able to make this donation to Breast Cancer Care which would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and creativity of our workforce. They show time and time again that they are passionate about getting involved and supporting local and national initiatives.”
