Mayday staff wear yellow to help raise money for Haiti earthquake victims

Haiti March 2010Mayday staff pulled on their yellow ties, shirts, socks, scarves and jackets to raise money for the Haiti earthquake victims today.

Over £1000 was raised by staff for the cause, which will be given to the charity Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief and development organisation providing aid to the people of Haiti.

Chief executive, Nick Hulme, who was seen wearing a yellow tie and matching cuff links said:  “Like many people we wanted to do something to help the people of Haiti.

“The response on the day has been fantastic with so many of our staff getting into the fundraising spirit by wearing every possible shade of yellow. The money raised will provide the people of Haiti with much needed food and supplies.”

Organiser Sally Ovenden, a superintendent radiographer for Mayday, said: “I’m delighted that so many people have got involved today.

“We chose yellow as it symbolises hope and also light, something which we hope our donations will bring to the people of Haiti.”

Staff in clinical areas who were unable to wear yellow, a showed their support by wearing a yellow sticker.
