Staff at the Patrick Port Botany Terminal (PBBT) came together recently to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) as part of the Foundation’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Wearing pink Bisley Workwear shirts, the staff also challenged their Western Australian colleagues to ‘Pink Up’ and help the Foundation raise funds for breast cancer research.

With the support of its partners Bisley Workwear and RSEA, PBBT held a breakfast on Friday morning for their staff and NBCF representatives. RSEA presented a $500 cheque to NBCF. PBBT staff sold pink ribbon cookies, wore pink Bisley Workwear shirts and passed around a pink bucket raising $1060 in total for vital breast cancer research.

Shane Jones, Safety, Security and Environment Manager at PBBT commented that everyone at the wharf knew someone who had cancer and wanted to show their support by participating in the Pink Up campaign and helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation reach its goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. The Terminal staff now wants their Western Australian colleagues to follow suit.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation CEO Carole Renouf, Real Men Wear Pink shouldn’t just be limited to workwear and high-vis clothing. Anyone can register online at, wear a pair of pink business socks or a pink tie for the day, or get around town in a pink tuxedo.
