Painting it Pink this October
The Little Greene Paint Company has once again joined forces with national breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Haven, to promote and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For the whole of October 2016, Little Greene customers will be actively helping support people with breast cancer. Little Greene has pledged that 15p from every tin of paint sold via the company’s 270 UK-wide stockists, or through its website www.littlegreene.com, will be donated directly to Breast Cancer Haven.
This will be the sixth year running that Little Greene has raised funds during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Managing Director David Mottershead confirms: “Our loyal customers always relish the opportunity to do their bit during Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and no better way of doing that than improving their homes with a new paint colour, all the while knowing that they’re helping improve the quality of life for cancer patients. Breast Cancer Haven provides personalised care and support for patients nationally and the funds we help raise are always used in such a positive way and make such a difference.”
Pamela Healy OBE, Breast Cancer Haven’s Chief Executive adds: “This is the third time we have worked with Little Greene and we are thrilled that the company has once again chosen us as the charity to benefit from its support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We receive no Government funding, so every penny raised is hard won and spent wisely on life-changing and affirming services. And I’m reliably informed that pink is the on-trend colour at the moment. So no excuses - paint it pink this October!”
Help is also available through the website – thehaven.org.uk; an outreach programme, including many of the support centres’ elements, is available to anyone who can’t get to one of the Havens.
The Breast Cancer Haven does not receive any government funding so is entirely dependent on charitable donations and fundraising events to raise funds. It costs around £1,000 to provide the Haven programme for each Visitor and the care and support make a huge difference to their lives at a difficult time.
