MRS Services Group is painting the town pink and blue.

Well, their workshop at least.

Throughout the months of October and November, the business will point to the cheery colours to raise awareness for breast cancer and prostate cancer.

A pink and blue bucket stood proudly outside the MRS workshop on Tuesday to shine a light on the causes.

While part of the campaign’s purpose is to raise awareness, the group has also worked together to raise $1000; $500 each for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Staff members had the option of buying pink or blue hi-vis shirts, with some of the cost going toward the causes.

MRS Services Group mechanical superintendent Stephen Fairhall said the business had supported both foundations for a number of years.

“It has grown in reception from our people,” he said.

“I think it’s just a day that everyone wants to get involved with and I guess the best part about it is we raise money for two very worthy charities.”
