Wear It Pink Day Raises Amazing Amount!

On Friday 18th October, we held a ‘Wear It Pink’ Day in order to support Breast Cancer Awareness. With all our employees wearing pink whilst making a minimum of a £1 donation to Bolton Breast Unit.

What a fantastic ‘wear it pink day’ it turned out to be! From a famous guest visitor performing his trick on Andy & Jack, which provided a very amusing incident for everyone, to a brilliant bake sale which provided a number of  delightful treats for all our customers.

We’d like to thank, Mata and her Zumba class, our walking footballers, the walking sports ladies, our employees and all of our partners and customers for making the day, so enjoyable and successful.

We’re delighted to announce we raised over £640.00, which is an amazing amount. We hope you enjoyed the fun and the delicious goodies!

Thank you for your support, from everyone here Stateside Foods Bolton Arena.

Keep an eye out for our next event, which is scheduled on Friday 15th November.

Events Planned For Our Chosen Charities

At the start of the year Bolton Arena staff were asked to nominate two charities to support throughout the year. Children In Need and Bolton Breast Unit were confirmed as our two nominated charities for the forthcoming year.

On Friday 18th October, Stateside Foods Bolton Arena are holding a ‘Wear It Pink’ Day in order to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Our employees will be wearing pink whilst also making a minimum of a £1 donation to Bolton Breast Unit. A cake sale will also be taking place in the café area between 11-1pm with all proceeds going towards Bolton Breast Unit. We are encouraging anyone else who comes into the Arena to partake in our ‘Wear It Pink’ Day and to kindly make a donation to Bolton Breast Unit.

On Friday 15th November we will be raising money for both Children In Need and Bolton Breast Unit in the form of a Dress Down Day, where a cake sale, staff competition and a raffle will all be taking place. All money donated will be evenly split and sent to both of our chosen charities.

Thank you to all staff members for their effort into organising the fundraisers. Be sure to keep an eye out in the future as the time has almost come to pick our chosen charities for 2020/21.”
