Pink Truck Supports Think Pink Scotland Breast Cancer Charity

Instead of the usual business tips this post is about Newtown Waste Solutions launch of their new Pink Trucks in support of Breast Cancer Charity Think Pink Scotland. Watch the video below or read on for the full story. If you would like to help in the fundraising please contact Newtown Waste Solutions on 01698 250007.



£50,000 target
Newtown Waste Solutions will be holding various fund raisers throughout the year to help raise funds for breast cancer research in Glasgow. The skip hire company is based in Motherwell and is set itself a target of raising £50,000 for Think Pink Scotland’s breast cancer research campaign. In the UK breast cancer is now the most common cancer with about 125 women diagnosed with the disease every day. Increasingly people are becoming aware that men can also fall victim to breast cancer and 300 UK men are diagnosed with the condition every year.

Martin McLindon and Billy Neilson, co-owners of Newtown Waste Solutions, launched the company’s two Pink Trucks, supplied by MAN Truck and Bus Limited, on 1st September 2015. For the next year or two they will become a familiar sight on the streets of Motherwell and Glasgow.

The trucks have been given an eye-catching pink livery to support Think Pink Scotland’s breast cancer research campaign. The trucks are MAN Euro 6 8x4 with hook lift and a power of 400bhp. Roger Turnbull from MAN Truck and Bus was at the launch to support Newtown Waste Solutions. Roger said he thought, "the truck looked absolutely stunning and that he was certain it would make a big impact on the roads".

By supporting Think Pink Scotland Newtown Waste Solutions and Skip Hire are helping to fund ground-breaking cancer research in the University of Glasgow’s laboratories. All monies raised will help to bring the best scientific talent to Glasgow and purchase vital new equipment. The ground breaking breast cancer research at the University of Glasgow is advancing our knowledge of breast cancer and is helping to develop new and better breast cancer therapies. It is hoped that the charity fund raising will help lead to breakthrough breast cancer treatments.

Research in Glasgow  
Think Pink Scotland will use the £50,000 raised by the breast cancer campaign to help fund vital research projects, scientists, equipment and technology, and those funds will be spent in Glasgow. By funding research we hope to develop new treatments and more effective treatments for people with breast cancer.

The good thing about Think Pink Scotland is that administration costs and a lot of the other costs are absorbed by Glasgow University so every pound donated to Think Pink Scotland goes to research.

As part of their partnership with Think Pink Scotland Newtown Waste will be holding a variety of fundraising events including a fundraising golf day, an afternoon tea, and also a sportsman’s dinner. And one of the first things Newtown Waste will be doing is a collection at MotherwellFootball Club.
