Sites wear it pink for charity

Teams across the west section of the Tideway project recently swapped their normal headgear to wear pink hats to raise money for a breast cancer charity.

Breast cancer affects both men and women at any age. Breast Cancer Now is the research and care charity and this fantastic organisation could not provide the valuable services it does without the contributions made from fundraising events.

The response from the workers to support the fundraising was tremendous with sites eager to get involved. This is not the first time they've swapped their hard hats for the special pink editions in support of breast cancer charities and teams from sites such as Acton Storm Tanks and Putney Embankment sported the head gear as they continued their work building the 'super sewer' to clean up the River Thames.    

The Carnwath Road team also organised a cake sale and together with the donations made from the hats raised over £2,800.

The pink hard hats were donated by Greenhams for people to purchase via a donation to the charity, sold by the BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty joint venture building the west section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel.
