Husqvarna, is raising money for Breast Cancer Care this year, marking a third year of support for the charity. This month, the manufacturer has launched an online auction for a Pink Automower®, with the proceeds going to charity.
The auction for Husqvarna’s robotic lawnmower will run until 18 October. This gives potential bidders the chance to get involved and own their own robotic gardener whilst also raising money for a great cause.
Husqvarna is pioneering the robotic lawnmowing industry since 1995. It produces industry-leading robotic lawnmowers from its Newton Aycliffe which sell globally.
Staff in Newton Aycliffe also took part in an internal fundraising day on Friday 12 October. This took place at the company’s offices to celebrate Breast Cancer Care’s ‘The Big Pink’; dressing up in pink and raising money. Over the past two years the company has raised over £7,000 through fundraising activities.
Ken Brewster, commercial director for Husqvarna said:
“We’re happy to be raising money for such a great charity for the third year running. We’ve had some great success from our previous pink auctions and giveaways, and we hope this will continue. It was brilliant to see our staff getting on board and wearing pink in the office again this year. It’s becoming something of a tradition now for us.”
Alec Raven, head of community fundraising at Breast Cancer Care, added:
“We’re so grateful to Husqvarna for holding their online auction, supporting us for a third straight year and for also doing a Big Pink in their office too. The money raised will help Breast Cancer Care to continue to provide free services including:
Support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there
Welcoming online forums
Local group support
“691,000 people are living with a breast cancer diagnosis in the UK today, and that figure is only set to grow. With support from companies like Husqvarna, we can be here for more people, whenever they need us.”
How does Husqvarna Automower® work?
Husqvarna Automower® works by installing an electrical boundary wire around the cutting area. There are range of models available, capable of managing lawn sizes up to 5,000m² in any weather. The Husqvarna Automower® can tackle even the most complex of lawns, including those with rough terrain and slopes up to 45%.
Automower® keeps lawns neat and healthy by distributing small grass clippings back into the lawn to act as a natural fertiliser. This means there is no need for grass clear up afterwards.
