Mactaggart & Mickel Homes is in the pink
Employees at Mactaggart & Mickel Homes’ Head office, timber factory and sites at Douglas Gardens, Milngavie, and Greenan Views, Ayr recently kitted themselves out in pink to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK’s Beat Breast Cancer Campaign.
Selling an array of cakes and warm morning rolls in their colourful clothing, the staff managed to raise £1,000, which the company has matched, adding a total donation of £2,000 to the £2million raised during Breast Cancer Awareness Month from wear it pink fundraising events.
The Beat Breast Cancer Campaign aims to help and support as many women suffering from the disease as possible, even if that means just a voice at the end of the phone. Last year the charity managed to support 1.7 million people either online, over the phone or in person.
Ed Monaghan, chief executive of Mactaggart & Mickel Group, commented: “It is fantastic to see our employees fundraising for this amazing charity. Everyone really embraced the theme and some of the gents on site looked particularly fetching in pink!”
