The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme project team members are today (20 Oct) ‘wearing it pink’ in support of efforts to ensure a brighter future for women affected by breast cancer.
Organised by Breast Cancer Now as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Wear it Pink day is one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, with thousands of people taking part in communities, schools and workplaces across the country.
Since the first wear it pink event in 2002, more than £30m has been raised for research being undertaken to discover how to prevent breast cancer, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively at every stage in order to save lives.
Phil Ramsay, Team Van Oord National Framework Manager, said:
“Breast cancer affects so many people – that’s why it’s great to see our employees looking ‘pretty in pink’ today to support such a worthwhile cause.”
The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme is being delivered by Team Van Oord on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.
The £31m flood defence scheme has a high profile within the local community as areas of Shoreham were flooded in 2013. The scheme addresses the current flood risk, and future risk as sea levels rise.
