Breast cancer awareness month which in October annually aims to raise awareness of this disease that affect many people around the world. With early detection and the right medical care, treatment can be successful and we have many cancer survivors that continue to inspire those around them.
After the success of the cancer awareness campaign initiated by PT Staff in 2017, the event was hosted again to not only create awareness for breast cancer, but all kinds of cancer. Besides creating awareness, the aim was to also raise funds that is aimed at research to find new treatments, finding more successful treatments and early detection. PT staff went above and beyond to collect money by selling raffle tickets, food and a variety of cakes and cupcakes. Staff dressed in pink and blue to show their moral support for cancer survivors, people fighting the disease and to honour those who lost their battle with cancer.
It was all hands on deck with the preparation for this event. Local Government Finance Group 1 and 2 pulled out all the stops by donating and preparing all the foods and treats that were on sale.
Although the event was only promoted to PT staff but with interest from other departments and visitors to the building, all food and treats were sold within two hours – it was a raging success.
We would like to thank all staff that participated in this initiative by living our value of caring. Thank you for donating, utilizing your own time and resources to make this event a success.
