Builders at a Washington housing development are in the pink!

The workers from the Teal Farm Village development in Washington, Sunderland, are showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donning pink work wear on site.

Local housebuilder David Wilson Homes North East is taking part in the ‘Wear it Pink’ campaign throughout October and will be collecting funds for Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer research charity.

Employees at the Teal Farm Village development on Barmston Road have been seen sporting bright pink hardhats and pink fluorescent jackets, all in aid of raising awareness for the cause and are hoping to raise a significant sum for the charity.

Chris Neal, sales manager at Teal Farm Village, said: “We’re delighted to show our support in Sunderland for Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October as with so many people being affected in some way by the disease, it is such a vital cause.

“It is fantastic to be involved with this campaign and everyone looks great in their pink outfits! We’ll be collecting funds on site for the rest of October and welcome any donations from the local community.”

The Wear it Pink campaign has been running all week and invited people to wear pink for a day while raising money for Breast Cancer Now.
