Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention is now known as Prevent Breast Cancer
MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM - Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage and BCL Office Moving are taking charity support and fundraising to a new level – by each painting a removals truck shocking pink in support of their new charity partner, Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention.
The Manchester-based charity has a special place in the heart of BCL Office Moving. In 2007, BCL moved Genesis and the Nightingale Centre to their current location at Wythenshawe Hospital, with managing director Rod Seeland and his stepson hands-on with the move.
In 2010, Rod’s sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer which tragically has recently spread, and members of staff recently began to raise money in 2013 to support Genesis.
At the same time, John Bradshaw & Son, parent company to Britannia Bradshaw and BCL Office Moving were searching for a charity to support. Says the firm’s Chairman, Malcolm Halley: “Both Britannia Bradshaw and BCL over the years have supported many local charities, but this year we have gone that extra mile and painted two of our new vehicles in shocking pink in support of Genesis. As a company over the next twelve months, through various events, we are hoping to raise in excess of £25,000 in support of Genesis.”
Lester Barr, chairman of Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention, said: “We’re thrilled that Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage and BCL Office Moving have decided to support Genesis – and in such a big way! BCL assisted us with our office move in 2007, and it’s fantastic that they’ve thought of us when looking for a charity partner this year.”
Britannia Bradshaw and BCL are looking at their new trucks as a long-term way to support Genesis. In their daily business, the trucks will be travelling around the North West, the rest of the UK and even to Europe for at least the next 10 years. They’ll also be appearing at local events and festivals on behalf of Genesis to raise the charity’s profile and help to attract donations.

BCL are a great team of people that are very friendly and efficient with it. The move was stress-free and this was mainly down to the hard work of the BCL Team. We would definitely recommend them. The team were excellent and we have no issues with the service they provided. All the guys were friendly and very efficient and excellently managed by Andy.
I had used them before and were happy with the service. Only a small comment of where the guys stay overnight - they had to travel from Morden to central London which took around 2 hours each way. That is a lot on top of a busy day packing/loading/unloading. I'm not sure somewhere closer in would be easier for them?
Very friendly and helpful. They were both very good as they took care of all boxes and crates they handled, we would like them to help help with our move to the permanent office in 8 weeks time
Excellent communication throughout. Clear and knowledgeable representative. I cannot stress enough just how good these guys were. Punctual, friendly and got the job done with ease.
Very helpful and knowledgeable. We used them for our last move and had a good service at a reasonable and competitive cost. The other men removed and placed the furniture into the new office well. I appreciate it was a long day for them – but they worked hard – so, thank you.
Friendly and brilliant customer service. Julie was very knowledgeable and helped put me at ease regarding the office move. They were brilliant, very hard working and made sure everything was completed correctly
Good customer service, very efficient and helpful
Promoted an efficient, friendly but professional service on enquiry. [The men on removal day were] friendly and helpful.
