Wrap it pink this season for breast cancer research

Following the huge success of last year’s campaign, Volac is once again helping to raise money for Breast Cancer Now with our pink bale wrap campaign.

The campaign, which sees a donation made to the charity Breast Cancer Now from sales of each roll of a special pink version of the film used by farmers to wrap the bales, raised over £26,000 in 2016. This compared with over £10,000 raised from a similar campaign in 2015.

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.

The huge support received for this campaign last year, with pink bales appearing up and down the country, demonstrates the huge generosity of the farming community to support this fantastic cause. 

Jackie Bradley, Product Manager for Volac said:

We have now had two very successful years running this campaign and raising money for a cause which is so close to our hearts. We are so pleased to be launching the campaign again this year and would love to see farmers and the farming community getting involved this year, to see if we can raise even more money for breast cancer research.
