Businesses in Pontypridd came together on Friday 14th October to help fundraise for the ‘Turn Cwm Taf Pink’ day. This was driven forward by the Your Pontypridd Business Improvement District (BID), a business-led and funded initiative which has been established for the town centre, working in conjunction with local charity Giving to Pink.
Pink bunting has been put up and many businesses turned their windows pink to show their support. There were also a number of fundraising events going on throughout the town on the day. This included pink treats on sale in Princes café, a raffle in Boots and Barclays, Gwyns Opticians who sold beautiful pink cakes and the WI who also hosted a “pop-up” afternoon tea in the museum on Saturday 15th . The Skinny Dog also donated £100, £200 by the knitting nanas and the Celtic Club got involved by fashioning their pink t-shirts behind the bar.
Robert Thomas, Chair of Your Pontypridd commented “This is a brilliant initiative which supports a great cause. Your Pontypridd were really pleased to be backing the day and hope that the businesses and the community will all come together and get involved.”
Panache, Young Ones and Tesco have also got involved by selling Limited edition Giving to Pink t-shirts
