PROjEN’s Charitable Commitment
PROjEN, the award winning Project Management Company based in Cheshire have once again shown their commitment to charity by taking part in the “Wear It Pink Campaign” and the “Jeans for Genes Day”.
In October 2008, Staff at PROjEN’s head office dusted off their best pink frocks, ties and shirts to raise money for Breast Cancer.
The Breast Cancer Campaign has been running “the Wear it Pink” event for many years now and aims to raise awareness of the disease as well help find a cure. Celebrities such as Kylie Minogue have helped raise the profile in recent years; however it is not just a women only disease. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), this year alone over 182,000 women and men have been diagnosed with breast cancer; and of that number over 40,000 have succumbed to the disease.
In addition to the Wear it Pink Campaign, denim was also worn to raise money for Jeans for Genes. Jeans for Genes is a national children’s charity which raises money for the care of children with genetic disorders.
John Taylor – PROjEN’s MD, commented “I am always pleased to see PROjEN’s employees join in and support charitable causes – not only is good for the charities, but also for morale in the office. There were no pink wigs this year for “wear it pink” …just a few strange dress combinations to make the most of the day…. Overall in October I am pleased to report that PROjEN employees raised a total of £151 for Breast Cancer Care and Jeans for Genes… these are both worthwhile causes and I thank Emily Birch for arranging the days and all those who made the effort and took part.”
