Excel Wear It Pink For Breast Cancer Now

Excel Industrial Doors and Shutters wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Now

Yorkshire-based Excel Industrial Doors and Shutters has raised an impressive £314.12 for Breast Cancer Now as part of the charity’s ‘Wear It Pink’ campaign.

On 23rd October the team wore bright pink hi-vis waistcoats, with some even donning pink accessories such as scarves and shower caps on their quest to gain donations from customers and the general public. Back at the Excel head office the company also held an internal raffle and bake sale.

Wear it Pink is an annual event run by leading breast cancer awareness charity Breast Cancer Now which sees companies and individuals wear pink to raise money and awareness to the cause as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year the charity raises around £2 million on the day with approximately 7,093 schools, 39,964 workplaces and 8,256 homes and social venues getting involved.

Duane Swift, managing director at Excel Industrial Doors and Shutters, said:
“It’s so important that we get involved with charity events such as the Wear It Pink campaign to raise money for a disease which affects so many people up and down the country, even here in Yorkshire. Everyone in our team really got involved and I can’t thank them enough for their dedication in parading around in pink shower caps! We enjoyed the day and hopefully our contribution will help the charity move forward in finding a cure for breast cancer.”

Excel Industrial Doors and Shutters is dedicated to helping charities in Yorkshire and all across the UK, with fundraising efforts going on regular at the Huddersfield head office.

Excel is a leading manufacturer of roller shutters, industrial doors, personnel doors and roller garage doors, serving both commercial and domestic properties in the Leeds, Wakefield and the surrounding Yorkshire area.
