Centra Launches ‘Cups Against Cancer’ Coffee Mornings
Centra stores nationwide to host coffee mornings as they join the Irish Cancer Society in the fight against breast cancer. Centra stores across Ireland get their cups at the ready for ‘Cups against cancer’ coffee mornings.
On 27th September, Pippa O’Connor, one of Ireland’s top bloggers and Centra ambassador, launched Centra’s initiative to support the Irish Cancer Society this Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Speaking at the launch, Pippa O’Connor said, “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a cause that I am proud to support and I’m delighted that Centra is joining the Irish Cancer Society to fight against breast cancer…”
At the launch, Centra held it’s first ‘Cups against Cancer’ coffee morning hosted by radio DJ Doireann Garrihy. The event also included from breast health advice from Naomi Fitzgibbon, lifestyle advice from Pippa O’Connor and a personal account by a breast cancer survivor. The coffee morning which took place in Lock 6 Cafe was the first of many taking place across the country throughout October.
Centra will also be hosting pink walks throughout communities across Ireland and they are calling on the nation to take part in the walk and hosting your own coffee mornings to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society. For customers who lead hectic lifestyles but are eager to support this worthy cause, they can simply text CENTRA to 50300 to donate €4* to the Irish Cancer Society. For more details, log on here
This year over 2,900 people in Ireland will be told they have breast cancer, with eight women diagnosed with breast cancer in Ireland every day. Money raised through these Centra initiatives will go directly to the Irish Cancer Society’s essential services including information and support services for people throughout the country who have been affected by breast cancer. This is the seventh year Centra has supported the campaign and to date has raised over €2.8 million for the charity.
Anyone concerned about breast cancer should call the Irish Cancer Society’s Cancer Nurseline on Freephone 1800 200 700 or drop into one of 13 Daffodil Centres in hospitals nationwide. Further information is available here
