How the staff of Beta have helped!
The staff of Beta occasionally have days and activities to help certain charities. Scroll down below to see a few!
Dress down Day for Essex Air Ambulance, April 2014
During the month of April the staff of Beta had a ‘dress down day’ raising £100 for the Essex Air Ambulance! This charity was voted for by the staff themselves.
The intrepid staff of Beta Pharmaceuticals have done it again! After the successful ‘Wear it Pink Campaign” in Aid of Breast Cancer , Staff decided to support a men’s charity raising £200 in aid of the global charity “Movember” where funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and men’s mental health issues are raised. Since its humble beginning in 2003 in Australia, the charity has become global with 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas in 21 countries worldwide, dedicating the month of November to growing amazing moustaches’, fund raising and effectively acting as walking talking billboards for men’s health issues.
And if any of you were wondering…those really are real moustaches adorning the beautiful faces of our very own Beta Pharmaceuticals “Mo Sistas”!! Congratulations everyone!!
Wear it pink day, Friday 25th October 2013
Staff of Beta Pharmaceuticals joined in with the national campaign ‘wear it pink’ day on Friday 25th October. Breast Cancer Campaign is a charity who funds world-class breast cancer research projects in the UK and Ireland that provide the greatest potential to benefit patients.

So far the charity has awarded over 360 grants with a total value of over £39 million to universities, medical schools and research institutes across the UK.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual event held in October where people wear something pink. £75.31 was raised on the day through donations and £424.69 was donated from Beta Charitable Trust totalling the amount to £500.00. The day was great and created an atmosphere full of fun with wigs and face paint!
