When Carnaby based company Total Environmental Technology added a new vehicle to their fleet in the Summer of 2018, they decided they wanted the vehicle graphics to support the fight against breast cancer and to raise awareness. After a chance meeting with one of HER Breast Friends Trustees, Derek (whose own company Michael Barugh Steel in Hull, has a ‘pink’ HBF lorry), Managing Director Mike Farrell decided that supporting a local charity was the way forward – and that’s just what they have done!
Mike Farrell said:
“When somebody close to you receives the shocking news that they have cancer, the devastation slowly starts to erupt in and around everyone close to that person. The hardest part for me, having been witness to this, is time. Waiting for results, waiting for appointments and hope. HER Breast Friends deserve the recognition; they are a minority within a majority, but they are as strong as any organisation out there helping to combat and beat cancer. We are thankful for the opportunity given to us in joining them, raising awareness and helping to fight this terrible disease”.
On 26th October 2018, Trustees and Members of HER Breast Friends were invited up to the depot in Carnaby near Bridlington, to meet everyone at Total Environmental Technology and after a wonderful tour of the factory, they all enjoyed the official unveiling of the fabulous PINK lorry – and how spectacular it looks too!
This beautiful lorry really will help to raise awareness of the Charity and the fight against breast cancer!

And as if that wasn’t enough, as well as supporting the Charity with this amazing lorry, a cheque for £500 was also donated by Total Environmental Technology.

But that wasn’t all! Dale Arnott from Thompsons Commercials in Hull added another donation of £500…

The Trustees and Volunteers had a fabulous morning, and enjoyed meeting everyone at Total Environmental Technology and Dale from Thompsons Commercials. The support and donations received will go such a long way to help the Charity to continue to support local people affected by breast cancer.
From everyone at HER Breast Friends a massive THANK YOU! You are all so amazing!
If you see these incredible HBF lorries travelling the roads of Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire and beyond, don’t forget to give them a wave and a huge cheer!
