Pirelli raise Breast Cancer Care funds
Pirelli staff at the company’s Burton upon Trent contact centre have raised £520 for the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in one day. During Friday 26 October, Pirelli’s Burton office hosted cake sales, leg waxing and a £1 donation for some of the calls taken by staff during the day. Pirelli UK managing director, Dominic Sandivasci, commented: “Fundraising for cancer is a cause that is close to our hearts here at Pirelli and I am delighted to hear that our employees got into the spirit of things to help raise money for a worthy cause.
“I was especially impressed to hear that some of male employees went through what I can only imagine is a very painful leg waxing experience to raise extra funds! I am certain that the success of our latest fundraising efforts will help pave the way for more charity-based work activities in the future.”
