BBP wear wigs for Pink Ribbon Day

29 November 2013

The BBP team recently held a charity collection day for the Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign at our Partner Council, Willoughby City Council.

As part of their monthly casual clothes day staff were encouraged to give a donation to support research into Breast Cancer.

The BBP team wore wigs while they collected donations to raise awareness for this important issue.

Adam's Story

Hi my name is Adam Corrigan and I work with the wonderful team down at the Better Business Partnership.

As you all know Breast Cancer effects so many of the wonderful women in our lives, be they mums, sisters, grandmas, daughters, cousins, colleagues or friends. Unfortunately I have had breast cancer come into our family and my wife is currently going through chemotherapy treatment. She is up to her fifth of (probably) nine doses scheduled to date and is doing very well. But as I am sure a lot of you know it is never a fun experience going through Chemo.

However, with the support of friends, family, and even a few wonderful colleagues, we are getting through the tough times and remembering to smile and enjoy life.

So my co-workers decided that we would try to raise a little bit of money for the Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign to help those affected by Breast and Gynaecological cancer. 

Where will your money go?

Every Day 50 women are diagnosed with Breast or Gynaecological cancer. Cancer Council raises awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers, as well as funds, in support of the many thousands of women in Australia and their families who are affected by these cancers.

Thanks to Willoughby Council and their staff for their strong support of BBP's charity collection.
