Breast Cancer Awareness month; The round up

Monday, November 4th, 2013

The Final Total..

We had a brilliant month that was fun, interesting and all for charity!

Drum roll please……OFFICE’s grand total raised for Breast Cancer Care this Breast Cancer Awareness month is £67,738.49!

Thanks to everyone who donated, got involved and contributed to such a brilliant charity that is so close to the hearts of everyone at OFFICE.

It’s been a big month at OFFICE for the whole team. We’ve all be beavering away trying to do what we can to raise money for Breast Cancer Care in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. So what exactly have we been getting up to to have raised such a brilliant amount, I hear you ask? Well, here’s a little round up for you of all the things that we’ve been doing to support the cause and how we got involved.

The Breast Cancer Care Fashion Show

We were so kindly invited to the Breast Cancer Care London fashion show, hosted at the very glamorous Grosvenor House, AJW Marriott Hotel on Park Lane. The show itself featured models who have all had a diagnosis of the disease, and we saw them strut their stuff down the catwalk in our very own OFFICE Ribbon shoe. We also heard the tragic news that the weekend before the event one of the models sadly passed away before being able to take part; Sally White.

To read more about the fashion show and see some fabulous pictures of the evening go to the blog here.

The Pink Day

In honour of such a great charity OFFICE turned pink for a day. Stores and Head Office dressed up to the nines head to toe in pink all to raise to some extra pennies.

You can check out all the pictures on Facebook here.

The Donations

We would guess that you all noticed that our brilliant store staff have been shaking the buckets in order to get you, our lovely customers, to part ways with your lose change and pennies in store. And they’ve done a brilliant job by raising a whopping £61,881!

The Shoe and Badge

The OFFICE Ribbon shoe was designed with this brilliant cause in mind. Taking inspiration from the current trends and the hot pink colour synonymous with Breast Cancer Care, we produced a beautiful heel that all women will be proud to wear. With over 70% of the shoe’s worth going straight to the charity there are no excuses good enough for why you wouldn’t buy this shoe!

Plus we added a little extra and we’re also selling the Breast Cancer Care pin on site. Walking around drenched head to toe in good deeds for all to see, just for £1 extra. The good feelings just keep rolling!

The Real Life Story

We were lucky enough to have the very brave Laura Owens write us a blog all about her experience of having this disease. In it we hear about the history of the charity and Laura also talks about how she felt and how she was helped by Breast Cancer Care during her treatment. Laura was one of the models in the London fashion show at the start of the month.

Read her blog here.

The Bake Sale

The secret bakers of OFFICE HQ got their bake on for a very special cake sale. With muffins, biscuits, cakes and cupcakes galore, we had a table full of delights, treats and goodies for a whole day! It was cake heaven and it was all for charity! Everything was sold for at least £1 throughout the day and we managed to raise £234.82! Thanks to everyone who got involved!

The Sample Sale

At head office we are lucky enough every now and again to be given the opportunity to buy old used samples. Scrambling up the stairs is only part of the challenge, once you get there it’s a race to find the shoes you’ve been keeping your eye on all season to see if they made it in! This month we had a big sale, with all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Care. The grand total for a day of crazy sample buying was £610.67!

Thanks again to everyone that took part. Bring on next year!
