“Breast Friends” Campaign


What is Breast Friends? 

Breast Friends is Action Cancer’s new campaign to encourage women to book their breast cancer screening appointments and raise funds for its unique breast screening service. The campaign encourages women to gather their friends to raise funds and awareness – this can be done at home, work or in any other setting in life. 

The Campaign is sponsored for the next three years by local online insurance company its4Women.co.uk who will match £ for £ every penny that the local community raise, up to £30,000! 

So, for instance, if a group of friends got together and raised £240, this covers the cost of 3 breast screenings for local women, then our good friends at its4Women will give us another £240 meaning a total of 6 ladies will benefit! 

Holywood Chamber of Commerce Partnership 

We are looking for as many Holywood businesses as possible to particpate in this fantastic fundraising initiative during October!

By coming on board as a Breast Friends fundraising partner, Holywood Chamber of Commerce will be given exclusive coverage during a three hour live broadcast on Q radio to promote those businesses that have taken part by raising funds. 

The live broadcast event will be hosted at The Old Inn, Crawfordsburn on Thursday 31st October and all Chamber business who have taken part in a Breast Friends fundraiser throughout the month of October will be invited to present their fundraising to Action Cancer and receive on air mention. 

We are asking each participating business to raise £240 which will allow Action Cancer to provide 3 breast screening appointments. Remember this will be matched £ for £ by its4women.co.uk meaning your fundraising will go twice as far. Action Cancer will provide all participants with a fundraising pack and materials to make fundraising easy and enjoyable.
