Wear it Pink is the national event which urges us all to wear an item of pink clothing for one day in return for a donation to the Breast Cancer Campaign.
And you might think that PPE clothing requirements in food factories meant that most people at 2 Sisters’ sites would be excluded from the fun. But not at all; 2 Sisters colleagues made sure that they got in on the pink action by proudly buying and wearing pink… hairnets! And all proceeds went to charity.
One team to do this were Five Star Fish in Grimsby who raised a total of £324.01 for Breast Cancer Campaign by selling and wearing pink hairnets, holding cakes sales and organising a sweepstake.
Since then the people at Five Star Fish have taken the idea one step further by having a red hairnet day to raise money for the British Legion. Lucy Stow, site receptionist, helped organise the fun said “it’s a way of involving production staff whilst still complying with factory standards. They love the opportunity and feel like they’re not missing out on fun.”
