Staff at a national assistive technology service based in Chester have been raising money for breast cancer by wearing it pink.

Sanctuary365’s team of call handlers, administrators and performance improvement staff, based on Northgate Street, traded in their everyday attire for fetching pink numbers to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign.

Staff also brought in some homemade cakes to get the tastebuds going and raise additional funds.

They joined other individuals and organisations across the country to take part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s annual Wear It Pink Day, which last year raised over £2 million.

Sanctuary365’s assistive technology and telecare service provides a means for people with a care or support need to live independently as possible.

This is achieved through the use of sensors fitted around the home to alert them of personal or environmental hazards, as well as a direct line to assistance when needed.

Head of assistive technology Kelly Miller said: “Our team get a lot of satisfaction by helping people in their day-to-day work, so the chance to do so while wearing something a bit out of the ordinary was too good to pass up.”
