Car wash boosts cancer charity
November 2, 2011
Staff at Littleport-based Direct Debit processing company, Eazipay Ltd, raised over Â£340 for Breast Cancer Campaign by organising a pink charity car wash at the weekend.
The event, which took place at Eazipayâ€™s offices in Lynn Road, Littleport on Sunday 30th October, was organised as part of the charityâ€™s â€˜Wear It Pinkâ€™ campaign and saw the Eazipay car wash team kitted out in pink â€“ including t-shirts, balloons, buckets and sponges.
Sophie Farnell, event organiser and one of Eazipayâ€™s Sales Executives, comments, â€œWe were delighted with the support we received on Sunday. It was a very busy and tiring day but weâ€™re so pleased to be able to support such a worthwhile cause and would like to extend our thanks to everyone who came along on the day as well as those who couldnâ€™t make it but made a donation online through our JustGiving page.â€
Breast cancer has become the most common cancer in the UK, affecting one in nine women at some point in their life. The research work that the charity carries out is vital in the search of a cure for breast cancer and relies solely on voluntary donations.
The Eaziapy Charity Car Wash JustGiving page will remain open for the next two weeks where donations can be made online. All monies raised will go direct to the charity. www.justgiving.com/theeazipaycarwash.
