Deeside AM visited workers at a newly-refurbished bank today who were Wearing it Pink for breast cancer awareness.

Alyn and Deeside Assembly Member Carl Sargeant popped in to see the transformation of the Nat West Shotton branch, where screened counters have been replaced by an open-plan design.

His visit on October 23rd coincided with Breast Cancer Now’s Wear it Pink day. Staff wore pink and gave out stickers supporting the campaign along with pink-decorated home-made cakes in exchange for donations to Breast Cancer Now. The campaign, which aims to raise awareness of those suffering with breast cancer, has raised £27m since 2002.

Mr Sargeant said: “In times where some banks are leaving the towns of Alyn and Deeside it’s wonderful to see one of the big names making an investment in Shotton. Nat West obviously have good customers in Deeside and are here to stay. I’m sure customers enjoy the great service I’ve witnessed here today from the kind-hearted staff who’ve also taken time out to support Breast Cancer Now.”
