PURPLE bras have become part of the A Man At Hand uniform this week.

The Quinns Rocks property maintenance company has turned this Friday’s Purple Bra Day into a week-long event to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care WA.

Tradesmen John Langford, of Iluka, and Leon White, of Quinns Rocks, said they chose to support this cause after Mr White’s wife Caroline was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.

“We found out first-hand about the amazing support provided by Breast Cancer Care WA,” Mr White said.

“Their work is really important and we want to do what we can to help.”

Mr White said about 16,000 women and 140 men were diagnosed with breast cancer each year, which includes about 800 women aged 20 to 39.

“Unfortunately, Caroline along with many other mums of young children in Perth fit into this category,” he said.

A Man At Hand will also donate $5 from every job in June. Visit goo.gl/wpPRmA.
