Skybus staff wear pink for breast cancer awareness
Skybus pilots and ground crew are wearing pink every day this month to raise money for breast cancer research.
Skybus has joined the FlyPink campaign to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and raise money for the Royal Cornwall Hospital's Charity’s cancer research department.
Pilots are sporting pink epaulettes and ground crew are wearing special aircraft pink ribbon pins, while engineers and fire crew have donned pink hi-vis and ribbons to show their support.
FlyPink is an organisation that works with pilots around the globe to support breast cancer awareness, early detection, care and research.
Skybus pilot Charlie Baker said: “As a team we wanted to show our support for this incredible cause and joining the FlyPink campaign has allowed us to raise awareness and funds within our industry.”
St Mary’s Airport café will also hold a special cake sale day on Friday, October 20th with the theme of pink to raise money for the hospital’s charity.
Staff from Thomas Cook, BMI regional, Winnair, Cathay Pacific, Qantas and Air Hong Kong are also supporting the FlyPink campaign around the world.
Skybus staff are showing support of the campaign via social media using the hashtag #SkybusFlyPink.
