A Larne man is helping to raise funds for The Pink Ladies Cancer Support Group and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Ken Lough is one of ISL Waste Management’s fundraisers.
ISL Waste Management is planning to support the Pink Ladies Cancer Support Group and Macmillan Cancer Support by wrapping bales of RDF not in conventional black plastic but in vivid pink and, for every bale processed, ISL will make a cash donation to the charities.
Barry Donaghy, managing director, of ISL Waste Management, said: “The colour is symbolic of the campaign to combat breast cancer and I hope our bright new bales will be a reminder of that battle, encouraging others to give financial support to cancer charities and emotional support to those who find themselves on the cancer journey.
ISL Waste Management will mark the milestones on its fundraising journey to a target donation of £10,000 by wrapping every 100th bale of RDF destined for energy recovery in vivid pink. Staff will also undertake a range of fundraising projects throughout the year.
Beverley Caldwell, a member of The Pink Ladies Cancer Support Group, which this year celebrates its tenth anniversary, said: “Our charity provides a range of cancer information and support services including a listening ear service that signposts people to other support that is available, a bra fitting service, breast and testicular cancer awareness sessions and fundraising in support of key projects.” undertaken by major cancer charities.
