Ankerside staff pink with success to raise funds for cancer charities

Wednesday, 29th October 2014

Ankerside Shopping Centre turned pink for a day to help raise funds for two cancer charities.

Staff left their normal uniforms behind to dress up in pink – with two shop workers even donning onesies for the Wear It Pink on Foxy Friday initiative.

It was organised by the Sharon Fox Cancer centre at Stoneydelph as part of a nationwide Breast Cancer Campaign event.

Ankerside Shopping Centre Pete Barber said: “It was great to see everybody taking part, from the management team, security staff and cleaners through to workers at all the shops. We believe that Ankerside is very much at the heart of Tamworth and we like to support charities such as this – last month we raised more than £1,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“I look forward to hearing how much was raised across Tamworth for the Sharon Fox Cancer Centre with Wear It Pink.”

Donations will be split between the two charities – there is still time to donate at
