Our Pink Partners
Huge thanks to the 244 companies that supported ‘Cups Against Breast Cancer’ this October. Thanks to your support we are working to ensure that everyone affected by a breast cancer diagnosis in Ireland receives the support and care they need!
Some of Ireland’s leading businesses became official Pink Partners of the Society in support of the fight against breast cancer. These companies joined forces to raise awareness and much needed funds for people affected by breast cancer across Ireland in tandem with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
All money donated by this year’s generous ‘Pink Partners’ will go to the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer programme which provides breast cancer information and support services to thousands of women and men across Ireland each year.
Receiving less than 5% of income from government funding, the Irish Cancer Society rely on public support and the backing of organisations like our ‘Pink Partners’ to fund vital services.
The corporate ‘Pink Partners’ supported in many different ways to help people affected by breast cancer across Ireland.
Meet the Pink Partners
- CPL - "We are delighted to support the Irish Cancer Society for the 2nd year running following a highly successful initial year. The pink is the new black campaign, supporting breast cancer patients and their families, is one that CPL have committed to in many aspects from financial support through to awareness. This is backed via limited edition pink bags of our best selling 20KG Supertherm Smokeless Coal, which are now available nationwide from all good stockists.''
- Dairygold - "As Pink Partners, Dairygold encourages its farmer members and farmers all over Ireland to wrap their silage bales in pink each silage season. Now in its 5th year, Dairygold's Wrap it Pink campaign aims to not only raise vital funds for the Irish Cancer Society, but also to raise awareness of breast cancer in rural Ireland. Dairygold also continues to support breast cancer awareness during the month of October by hosting 'Cups Against Cancer' coffee mornings in Dairygold's network of Co-Op Superstores across Munster. In 2019, Dairygold extended its activity of cancer awareness by showing support of the Irish Cancer Society's SunSmart campaign. Using their prominence within the farming community, Dairygold encouraged farmers to be smart in the sun this summer by following the sunsmart code while also giving out free samples of LA Roche Posay suncream across its store network. Both the Wrap it Pink and SunSmart campaigns run in tandem throughout the summer months. Almost €70,000 has been raised to date from Wrap It Pink and we hope to raise a further €20,000 in 2019."
