Steam engine painted pink to raise funds for breast cancer

Alford’s Riggalls Removals and Storage has recently unveiled its restored 1923 Marshall steam roller as part of a fundraising project.

The steam engine, which was built in Gainsborough and has been in the Riggall family since 1961, has undergone a dramatic transformation all in the name of charity.

The engine, which is called ‘Mary’, has undergone a three-year restoration which overhauled her main components.

The company started painting the engine up with the pain supplier suggesting a pink for the undercoat with a final top coat of red.

This sparked an idea and so the company kept Mary in her pink undercoat in support of the Breast Cancer Now charity.

To help raise funds, the company has set up a Just Giving Page where they’re hoping to raise £500 for the charity.
