Builders at a housing development switched out their usual hard hats and high visibility jackets for bright pink hats and vests for the breast cancer awareness campaign.

Housebuilder’s at Kings Gate development on Wooton Road donated £200 to Breast Cancer now to support its work and contribute towards necessary research.

More than £36 million has been raised by wear it pink supporters since it began in 2002. The charity helps fund vital research across the UK and Ireland to help find a cure for breast cancer at all stages.

This year, campaigners hope to raise even more through businesses, schools and individuals wearing it pink.
