As you are probably aware most JCB machinery is coloured in the infamous bright yellow colour. However as a one of a 22-tonne JCB excavator was painted pink for Waitings Drainage & Pipline Contractors in order to raise thousands for Eden Valley Hospice based in Carlisle and the Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland.
The amazing thing is every time this machine is used, a percentage of the revenue earned is given as charity to these two hospices.
A Managing Director at JCB said "We were delighted to be able to help such a worthwhile cause by donating the cost of painting the machine in pink. The machine caused quite a stir as it progressed down the production line and its eye-catching colour scheme should ensure lots of money is raised for the hospices."
