Survivex goes pink for breast cancer!

Staff at an Aberdeen based offshore training provider are showing their support for breast cancer and choosing to wear pink for a day.

Members of the Survivex Ltd team opted to take part in this challenge at the request of Operations Director Carole McLennan, whose friend has recently recovered from breast cancer.

"Watching my friend battle breast cancer inspired me to get involved" says Carole, "She was diagnosed early last year and at the time it was a huge shock. But we always stayed positive and marked each milestone with an overnight trip to Inverness just to get her away from it all. It may not be the traditional way to deal with cancer, but it worked for us".

Survivex offers a range of health and safety courses, from a multi-million pound facility at Kirkhill Commercial Park in Dyce. The company has been in operation for just over a year and employs over 60 members of staff.

Delegates attending a training course at Survivex on Friday 26th October will get a surprise on arrival as every member of the Survivex team will wear at least one pink item on the day, with the braver ones pledging to dress head-to-toe in pink.

Carole continues "we'll have fun if nothing else. Almost all our instructors are men and most have never worn pink in their lives. But I'm so pleased at the way that everyone is rallying round and getting involved. I just hope we raise plenty of money for this worthy cause as well".
