National Tyres and Autocare Raise over £55,000 For Breast Cancer Campaign
04 Nov 2004
National Tyres and Autocare have raised over £55,000 so far for Breast Cancer Campaign, and are only half way through their autumn fundraising campaign!
For each tyre sold during October and November 2004, National Tyres and Autocare are making a donation to Breast Cancer Campaign. This has already raised over £43,000 for the Charity in October alone.
In addition to this tyre promotion, the fast fit company has been involved in a number of other fundraising initiatives in support of Breast Cancer Campaign. National Tyres and Autocare donated a limited edition pink Smart car for the Charity's 10th Annual Pink Ribbon Ball held on 9 October, which raised £9,000 in a live auction.
Members of staff from National Tyres and Autocare have also been involved in their own fundraising activity for Breast Cancer Campaign. The company has pledged to match any money raised by employees for the Charity, which has boosted the total amount raised by a further £3,000.
Alan Revie, Proprietor of National Tyres and Autocare, commented,
"We are delighted to have now raised over £55,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign. Our fundraising target for the Charity is £100,000, so we are well on our way!
"Having felt the devastating effects of breast cancer first hand, I feel very strongly that companies should demonstrate their social responsibility, and what better way to do this than to raise funds directly for a charity such as Breast Cancer Campaign?"
Breast cancer will affect one woman in nine during her life in the UK and we have one of the highest mortality rates in the world. For further information visit www.breastcancercampaign.org
