National Tyres and Autocare Raises £110,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign
27 Jan 2005
National Tyres and Autocare has raised £110,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign in just two months with a variety on innovative fundraising initiatives.
Fundraising activity from their 200 plus branch network throughout the UK included a promotion where the company donated 50p for each tyre sold in October and November 2004 direct to the Charity. National Tyres and Autocare also donated two limited edition pink Smart cars to Breast Cancer Campaign for a charity auction and a competition in Woman magazine. There were also various fundraising events involving staff, from sponsored walks to participation in Breast Cancer Campaign's national wear it pink® day.
Alan Revie, Chairman and Chief Executive of National Tyres and Autocare, presented the donation cheque to Pamela Goldberg, Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Campaign, on 19 January 2005. The Cheeky Girls were also on hand to lend their support to the cause (see photograph).
Pamela Goldberg, Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Campaign, commented,
"Corporate supporters like National Tyres and Autocare are invaluable to the Charity and provide us with a huge amount of support. Without them it would not be possible to fund so many important research projects."
Alan Revie, Chairman and Chief Executive of National Tyres and Autocare, added,
"We are delighted to have raised £110,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign in just two months! Having experienced the effects of breast cancer in my own family, I know that the funds raised will be put to good use in researching the cure."
In the UK breast cancer will affect one woman in nine during her life, and we have one of the highest mortality rates in the world. For further information visit www.breastcancercampaign.org
