WISBECH POST OFFICE PINK DAY FOR BREAST AWARENESS

POSTIES in Wisbech who turned pink saw their charity efforts turn well into the black by raising nearly £700 for breast cancer awareness.

Some 20 or so staff took up the challenge from postie Carolyn Maxey to help raise money for the charity.

And not only did the staff get to have fun and raise money for charity, their bosses are set to double the total to hand to breast cancer awareness.

"The details were in our monthly staff magazine," said Carolyn. "I said to everyone what about it and they agreed we should go pink for the day."

"Royal Mail agreed to match the amount we raised, so its' been a superb effort."

"Everyone who took part is well happy with the result and really chuffed," she said. "But the real stars are the people of Wisbech who gave so generously. Thanks to them we raised this sum of money."
