When most people envision an auto repair shop, grease and loud noises are typically the first thoughts to come to mind. However, on October 31, the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, workers at the four Alan Day Volkswagen showroom locations around London, England, were a vision in pink, The Guardian reports.
Aside from visually showing their support, the auto body shop also raised money for breast cancer research by selling cupcakes and signed copies of former UK X-Factor star, Stacy Solomon's newly released autobiography. According to the source, the company aimed to raise £4,000.
"The pink day is something we have been involved in for three years now as we know this cancer has affected many of our staff and customers," Paul Tanner, the managing director of the business told the publication. "From across all our four sites we’ve had a great response. Many customers have come down and some have even donated £20 for a cupcake instead of the £1.50 we had asked for, because they know what a great cause this day is for."
