Butchers are in the pink for a great cause
Staff at a popular butcher's shop in Great Wyrley will be in the pink on Saturday and it will all be for a great cause.
Allvisitors to E & S Mears Butchers on Walsall Road who donate to a charity fun day for Breast Cancer Awareness Month caled 'Let's Wear Pink' will receive a free sausage and bacon sandwich.
And if they are dressed in pink all the better as the eight members of staff will be wearing wigs, sunglasses and other colourful outfits throughout the day.
Dave McDonald, who runs the shop, said too many people are affected by breast cancer and they wanted to help towards awareness of it.
He said: "We have a very loyal customer base who always support us when we try to do something out of the ordinary and this has caught the attention.
"We have already raised £500 in advance of the event and anyone who comes in on Saturday either in pink or adds to the fund will get a free sandwich.
"Some of or all the staff at one time or another will be wearing pink on Saturday and we hope it brightens up people's days as Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close."
