The Pink Link Ltd Help Raise Over £5000 For Local Causes


Huddersfield based palletised distribution specialist, The Pink Link Ltd, has successfully helped to raise over an impressive £5,000 for local causes following a series of charity events throughout September.

The firm recently sponsored the Kirkwood Hospice Annual 10k Trail run for the fourth year in a row. Over 300 runners took part in this year’s event which raised over £4,000. The Pink Link Ltd mascot, Pinky Lynx, joined Sales and Commercial Director, Vicki Davenport, to cheer on the participants. The event received the highest entry rate it’s ever had and proved to be a huge success – all funds raised will benefit patients receiving specialist care in Huddersfield.

Friends and family of The Pink Link Ltd also recently took part in the World’s biggest coffee morning to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The coffee morning was one with a twist – filled with cakes, sandwiches, champagne and of course, coffee! The event raised £1,287 for Macmillan Cancer Support which helps to provide nurses to support cancer patients across the UK.

The Pink Link Ltd is also proud to support the Huddersfield Town Foundation and has been a ‘Championship’ supporter since 2013. The firm recently showed its ongoing dedication to the Foundation by attending its Kids Caf initiative which took place during the school holidays.

Beverley Shelton and Vicki Davenport of The Pink Link Ltd visited the Kids Caf to witness its work first hand, when it served 40 children ranging from toddlers to teenagers a two course meal comprised of chicken and vegetables, followed by a caramelised apple pie with custard. All food was created and served by a team of three girls of junior school age, carefully mentored by the Kids Caf organiser, Wendy Marsden. During their visit, The Pink Link donated a commemorative toy truck to every child.

Since 2001, The Pink Link Ltd raised over £185,000 for causes such as Yorkshire Cancer Research, Kirkwood Hospice and the Forget Me Not Trust. The Pink Link Ltd’s mission continues as the firm sustains its involvement with a number of charities, in which they will continue to raise money for throughout the year.

Vicki Davenport, Sales and Commercial Director at the Pink Link Ltd, commented: “We are keen to support local businesses and have lots of fun when doing so. The recent events have been extremely successful but none of them would have been possible without the support of our loyal customers, friends, family and employees. Every donation helps and we’re very proud of what we’ve raised to benefit local charities.”
