Meandu mine workers at Tarong wore special pink high-vis safety shirts yesterday in aid of breast cancer awareness

April 19, 2012

More than 190 workers at the Meandu Mine swapped their yellow safety shirts for a stylish pink yesterday … all in aid of breast cancer awareness.

The miners – employed by Thiess and Stanwell – purchased the high-visibility shirts to help raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Various shifts will be wearing the pink shirts over the next few days.

A Stanwell spokesman said this was one of the biggest-ever breast cancer awareness events held in the South Burnett. It was also one of the biggest shows of support by any mine in Australia.

The pink shirts were very popular, especially among the female employees, and are now expected to become collectors’ items!

    This is great! I love the pink shirts and the cause. Who supplied the shirts? We really want to get involved this October for the awareness day

    Hi, I’m a female employee from another mining company up north and I absolutely love your idea of the pink high vis shirts and was wondering if you could let me know who supplied them for you as I’m looking into organising the same thing for our mine. Thanks heaps
