Staff at a North Wales delivery company have helped raise funds for charity, by donning pink outfits for the day.

Drivers and office staff at parcels and pallets firm Delsol were among thousands of people across the UK taking part in the Breast Cancer Now charity’s Wear It Pink day. The annual event has raised more than £30 million for the charity in the past 15 years.

All shades of pink outfits, along with feather boas, hats and even hi-viz safety jackets, were the order of the day for the event at Delsol’s depots in Sandycroft and Caernarfon, involving the company’s 125 staff.

Delsol customer services manager Melissa Taylor organised the Wear It Pink event, which has raised more than £400 for the charity.

She said: “Cancer, and especially breast cancer, is a topic close to the hearts of many staff here at Delsol – I think almost all of us know somebody who has been affected by cancer.

“Wear It Pink Day is about having fun while helping to raise awareness of breast cancer, as well as providing much-needed funds for research into how to prevent the disease, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively at every stage, and so stop the disease taking lives.

“I was delighted that so many of my colleagues joined in by wearing something pink, and by donating to this very important cause.”

Delsol’s fleet of 90 modern trucks and vans deliver items around the UK and across the globe to retail, commercial, industrial and private addresses, for large companies through to small enterprises and personal customers.
