Big hearted housing provider organises charity event

Ongo, the Lincolnshire based housing provider, held a Wear it Pink day recently to help raise much needed cash for Breast Cancer Now.

In 2019 Breast Cancer Now and Breast Cancer Care merged together. It is now the UK’s largest comprehensive charity supporting this condition. Their aim is that by 2050, everyone who develops the disease will live and receive the support they need to live well.

Ongo always likes to be involved with various charities from sharing information to raising money for them. Most recently 13 Ongo colleagues took part in the 10-mile Glow walk, which helped raise money for Lindsey Lodge.

Wendy Wolfe, Customer Experience Manager said “I thought it was important to do this event to give support for those people living with breast cancer.

“It’s something very close to my heart after going through this personally, along with other colleagues from Ongo and it really is life changing, not only for the individual affected but also their families/friends.

“I’d like to thank everyone whose helped with promotion, donated prizes, baked cakes or just taken part in some way.

“It’s so important to continue supporting these kinds of events and we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s involvement.

“We are fortunate to work for an organisation who are fully supportive with various charities, and we see colleagues regularly taking part in different events throughout the year to help raise funds”
