Pink bale wrap re-launched to help breast cancer charity

11407067 900477936701194 8036318892207313784 nFollowing the huge success of last years' campaign, we are once again helping to raise money for breast cancer research by launching a special pink bale wrap - a version of our Topwrap silage bale film.

For every roll of the pink Topwrap film purchased, £3 will be donated to the charity Breast Cancer Now – with contributions toward the £3 coming from Volac, as well as Trioplast, the film’s manufacturer, and from the merchant supplying the roll.

Note: Topwrap RS1900 pink bale wrap has 1900m of film on a roll, as opposed to the standard green wrap sold which is  1500m. On average it is 7% cheaper than standard wrap and wraps 26.6% more bales.

After the success of the campaign last year, which helped to raise £10,000 for breast cancer charities, we are delighted to once again be involved in this fantastic cause.

As well as helping the charity by opting for the special pink silage wrap, farmers will also be visibly demonstrating their support as they produce brightly coloured pink bales on their farms. Last year, pink bales appeared across the country.

Alternatively, with limited supplies of the pink wrap, or for farmers who want to support the charity but prefer their bales in more traditional colours, we are also providing special pink stickers for those who wish to donate. These can be attached to the usual green or black bales, so that farmers can still demonstrate their support.
