Mailway Packaging Solutions, the independent co-packer working with some of the UK’s leading and aspirational brands, are to become the official sponsor of Pink Events which raises valuable funds for St James’s Hospital Breast Care Clinic.
After hearing about the work Pink Events undertakes and the support they provide to St James Hospital along with other cancer charities, including Breast Cancer Research, Bradford based Mailway will help to fund their special fundraising events whilst also offering strategic support to the young and growing organisation.
Pink Events, who have raised over £108,000 for local and national cancer charities since 2005, host fundraising events that help to improve patient comfort, treatment and care at the Breast Care Clinic. Through their events and literature they also educate and inform people that early diagnosis and treatment saves lives.
Pledging support throughout the year, Mailway Packaging hopes to help the Pink Events team to arrange even more fundraising activities, which will multiply donations and raise awareness of the work they do.
Richard Bramma, Mailway’s Chief Executive comments: “We heard all about Pink Events from former employee Kimberley O’Rourke who now helps to run the organisation. After seeing how they work and the passion they have for making a difference we knew that we wanted to give them a helping hand.
“We decided that we could offer funding to support special events throughout the year whilst also offering business support that will help them to grow and extend their network of contacts. Pink Events are a wonderful team and we are really proud to be their official sponsors.”
Maureen Young, Treasurer and Secretary of Pink Events comments: “We are thrilled that Mailway have offered their help through funds and mentoring. With their support, time and effort we know that we can build our brand and the work we do.”
Pink Events runs on an entirely voluntary basis, all events and fundraisers are arranged by the Chair of the organisation Sarah Pattinson and the team of volunteers Kimberley O’Rourke, Mandy Bellfield, Jacky Lister, Christine Dufton and Maureen Young.
