The staff at Worcester-based technology solutions provider, Open GI, are gearing up to take part in their very own Pink Walk, to help raise awareness and vital funds for Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign.

Whilst wearing decorated clothing, a team of 20 Support Centre ladies will embark on a challenging ten-mile walk, starting in Droitwich and finishing at Worcester Royal Hospital. The event will take place at midnight on Saturday 25 April.

Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign was initiated in 2007 by Consultant Breast Surgeon, Mr Steven Thrush, with the support of a small group of Trustees and volunteers. The trust set out to achieve a campaign target of £1.8m to fund the establishment of a new, dedicated Breast Unit at Worcester Royal Hospital for use by women and men across Worcestershire for all breast related issues.

“Each year we pledge to raise money for a local charity to enable them to continue to deliver their key services. It never ceases to amaze me how dedicated and forthcoming the staff are towards supporting our chosen charity, with the Pink Walk as a prime example.”

Chris Guillaume, Group CEO, added:
