The JCB Group ‘Wear It Pink’

Laura Freeman Fundraising, News

Shocking pink, blush, cerise, rose  – the JCB Group turned every shade of pink on Friday 23rd October for their ‘Wear It Pink’ for Breast Cancer charity fundraising day!   Pictured are staff from every branch of the group sporting pink tee shirts, ties, sashes, boots and some very dubious socks to support Breast Cancer Kent!

Staff were asked to donate £1 for charity if they wore something pink to work.  Customers were also asked if they would like to make a charity donation in return for their normally free refreshments in the waiting areas.

This was all in aid of October’s breast cancer awareness month.  Our leaflets were made available for staff and customers  to encourage checking and awareness of symptoms.  The JCB staff intranet ‘JCB Connect’ also promoted information for staff and their loved ones to get into the habit of self checking.

All in all, it was great fun for a very worthy cause!

The JCB Group are a local, family owned car and van dealership group.  They are based in Kent and Sussex and have branches for Volkswagen, SEAT, Honda and ŠKODA in Ashford, Gillingham, Sittingbourne, Eastbourne, Brighton and Crawley.
