Wear it pink!
For the tenth year running, Antalis raised £4,500 for the Breast Cancer Now charity, by supporting its annual ‘Wear it Pink’ Day campaign.
Antalis employees raised money for the charity by taking part in numerous activities, including the Antalis Pink Mile, which saw personnel from all of the company’s departments forming a continuous loop around the perimeter of the company’s Head Office, for 12 continuous hours. Employees, who walked ran, hopped, skipped and even roller-skated around the one-mile route, were sponsored in their endeavours by staff, customers, suppliers, family and friends, all of whom pledged their support with donations made via the online JustGiving form at www.justgiving.com/TheAntalisPinkMile/. In addition, employees donated £1.00 each to ‘dress down’ and wear pink clothes, with some even electing to spend the whole day in fancy dress!
The Antalis’ Head Office in Coalville also held a raffle, where all of the prizes, including an Apple iWatch, two Kindle’s, hundreds of pounds worth of gift cards, Champagne, an iPad, iPods and various hampers,were generously donated by suppliers, whileAntalis also donated £1 for every customer order placed on the day for Conqueror and Vibac Products. To further round things off, there was also a paper plane competition, a fancy dress competition, the Antalis Pink Bake Off competition and a book sale!
Samantha Brown, Communications Manager at Antalis, commented: “We have been overwhelmed with the response from our employees and customers this year, and are extremely proud to have raised £4,500 for a great cause. The Wear it Pink Day was a fantastic event for charity and a lot of fun for all of the staff who participated throughout our branches.”
