Hope, our pink Hitachi Zaxis 225 excavator, has been visiting Careys sites around the UK and has now raised £12,000 for Breast Cancer Now.
Donated by Careys Plant & Fleet, Hope joined the Carey Group in March 2019 and was spray painted pink to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s leading breast cancer charity.
Since March, Hope has visited six projects, including Wimbledon, Cherry Park and Keadby Power Station, where she has been assisting with breaking piles, capping beam works, and other excavation works.
As Hope makes her way from one project to another, the proceeds from Hope’s hire rate are donated directly to the charity, with £12,000 raised in 2019.
In October, she joined our site team at Woodsmith Mine near Whitby for Wear it Pink, Breast Cancer Now’s annual fundraising day. Across our sites and offices, our teams donned their finest pink attire and PPE for the occasion and raised an additional £7,500 for Breast Cancer Now.
All funds raised help Breast Cancer Now to fund research to discover a breakthrough of prevention, early detection and cure of breast cancer.
We are so grateful to everyone at Careys for helping Breast Cancer Now get closer to our ambition that by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live – and be supported to live well.
