Firefighters Wear it Pink

26/10/2009

Burton Firefighters are supporting the national breast cancer awareness campaign 'Wear it Pink' this week by wearing pink t-shirts to work on Friday.

Green Watch Firefighters are eager to take part in the event to support their fellow crew member Firefighter Lisa Morgan who had an experience with breast cancer last year but luckily it was caught before it had developed.

The charity is now at the heart of the Station and crews will be donating money in exchange for wearing their pink t-shirts! When they are out and about during the day they will also have collection box on the pump and will be asking for donations from members of the public.

"We are a close team here in Burton and are keen to take part in the event to show support to Firefighter Morgan."

East Staffordshire Area Commander, Mick Archer commented: "Here at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service we are renowned for our fundraising activities and throughout the year we raise money for various charities.

We are a close team here in Burton and are keen to take part in the event to show support to Firefighter Morgan. The 'Wear it Pink' day is also being supported by several stations across the county and at HQ our support staff will also be getting involved by donning their pink t-shirts."

All of the money raised goes towards vital research into beating breast cancer.
