#WearItPink

cupcakesToday is the day that everyone comes together in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The fight against cancer has never been stronger with people all over the country getting involved.

The Team here have had a brilliant day raising money especially with Billy’s ‘uniquely’ stylish outfit and not forgetting
Karen’s delicious pink cupcakes that were on sale to the staff here all to raise money for charity! Overall we managed to raise a brilliant £56.00 for Breast Cancer Now!

Breast Cancer Now are the UK’s largest breast cancer charity. get-pinkyThey are dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease. The belief is that if we all act now, by 2050, no one will die from breast cancer. But that can only be done by working in a new, collaborative way. By bringing together all those affected by the disease to improve the way we prevent, detect, treat and stop the disease. So we can move from a time when people fear breast cancer to a generation where everybody lives.

Every year, wear it pink raises around £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, by asking people to wear something pink and donate whatever they can. Since the very first wear it pink event in 2002, they have raised over £27 million thanks to the generosity of many thousands of people taking part in approximately 7,000 schools, 40,000 workplaces and 8,250 homes and social venues.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer currently in the UK and it is estimated that every day more than 1,300 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. This is why it is so important to us here at The Travel Visa Company to help raise money in order to prevent the amount of cases of breast cancer.

Jeans For Genes Day 2015

Friday the 18th September saw the return of Jeans for Genes Day. This was the second year the team here at The Travel Visa Company has taken part in this charity fundraising event. The idea behind the day is simple. Wear a pair of jeans and donate to charity.jeansforgenes

We managed to raise £21.70 over the duration of the day! The money we helped raise goes towards helping children and their families who have, and are affected by, genetic disorders.

There are between 4,000 and 6,000 known genetic WD
disorders currently being treated in the UK. It has been estimated that one in 25 children are affected by a genetic disorder and around 30,000 babies are newly diagnosed each year which is why donating to Genetic Disorders UK is so important.

Jeans for Genes has had massive
support since the organisations creation in 1992 and has raised over £35 million! The charity has been supported by a huge range of different celebrities and famous figures including Kate Moss, Warwick Davis, Fabrice Muamba and Kate Garraway.

Overall, the Travel Visa Company team had a brilliant day raising money for a brilliant cause!
