Cowplain-based digital marketing agency Tillison Consulting has taken part in Wear It Pink Day for the second year in a row, raising a fantastic £100 for Breast Cancer Haven. The team came to work on Friday 23 October sporting pink shirts, jackets and even hair.

This isn’t the first time Tillison Consulting has raised money for the breast cancer charity. While the team spends their days creating online advertising campaigns and making websites rank high on Google, they have also created Curry Business. This monthly event (that’s unfortunately on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic) is a networking get-together in Waterlooville, Hampshire. Everyone gets a wonderful curry while they meet other professionals based nearby and raise money for a local charity.

Mark Howard, Account Manager at Tillison, commented: “When I heard the team was going to be getting involved in the Wear It Pink Day fundraising event, I wanted to do one better than just wearing a pink shirt. So I thought why not colour my hair as well and really stand out!”

Sally Hall, CEO of Breast Cancer Haven, said: “We’re really grateful of the support from Tillison Consulting, who have been an important partner for the charity over the years.

“The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating on our ability to fundraise, as it has on the charity sector as a whole. The support of local companies, like Tillison Consulting, will help ensure our vital support for those with breast cancer continues.”

In 2019, a Curry Business was put together to support Breast Cancer Haven. Ellie from Breast Cancer Haven commented: “The evening was a great opportunity to meet local business people and raise awareness for Breast Cancer Haven in an informal setting. The contacts that I met were really engaged and active in the local community and I feel like the networking session was very valuable for us.”

This certainly won’t be the end of Tillison Consulting’s relationship with Breast Cancer Haven. When Curry Business returns, there’ll be more opportunities to raise money for this worthwhile cause, and Wear It Pink Day is just one way we can annually support the fight against breast cancer.
