SunSkips in Bury St Edmunds goes pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month




A Suffolk company is showing its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by giving its skips a pink makeover.

SunSkips, in Bury St Edmunds is also encouraging staff to wear pink to work on October 29, as well as hosting a pink cake bake-off.

Managing director Mat Stewart said that although he was fond of the bright orange skips that people have come to recognise, going pink for October simply had to be done.

He said, “Breast cancer is a terribly tragic disease that impacts more women and families than many of us may realise.

“We hope that by painting some of our containers pink, we will turn a few heads at construction sites and outside domestic properties to raise some awareness."

A limited supply of pink skips is available from SunSkips until November 1, at which time SunSkips will also announce its donation to a breast cancer charity.

Mat added, “We just want to do what we can to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the office, onsite and within the community - and we’re proud to do it.”
