Evesham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 10, 2012 -- Makita have chosen Breast Cancer Care as its first charity of the year after several staff members were affected and are hoping to raise £50,000 to support people affected by breast cancer. For every limited edition drill that is sold Makita will be donating £5 to the cause.
Lee Taylor, Online Manager of Toolbox said: "It's a fantastic promotion for such a great cause and as soon as I heard about it through our account manager we had to jump on board. The standard colour of the product is such a great seller, so I see no reason why the pink version won't do the same if not better.
The drill is a pink version of the DF330D Li-ion, 10.8v drill driver - complete with one 1.3Ah Li-ion battery, fast charger, drill bit set and bag - which is popular with professional construction workers and, with its small and compact size, ideal for DIY'ers who want to get busy around the home.
Anthony Langston, Website Manager of Toolbox commented: "We know just how popular the Makita range is and in these selfish times it's nice to see a company that still cares about their staff and of course good causes. We try to get involved in charity work as much as possible and we will certainly be pushing for the sales on this one".
Makita has a long history stretching back almost a century to 1915 when it all began in a small repair shop in Nagoya, Japan and since this time have expanded at a phenomenal rate with representation in over 150 countries around the world.
