PINK! PINK! PINK!
A huge thank you is owed to all of our customers who purchased this year’s limited edition Hot Pink Mini Windsor Handbags and Hampton Belts. We have officially sold out so these will no longer be available to purchase from the website or in our Holt store. All of the profits from this year’s ‘Breast Cancer Now’ range totalled to a phenomenal £24,738. We are extra proud of this result because this is the largest amount that we have raised in a single year with our BCN campaign. Our 2019 donation attributes to around 25% of the £99,189 grand total we have raised over 5 years.
Right now, an estimated 600,000 people in the UK are living with or after breast cancer and, every year, we lose over 11,500 to the disease. Breast Cancer Now works tirelessly to offer emotional and practical support to the tens of thousands of women living through and beyond diagnosis. They also play a key role in helping women with early symptom identification.
With the signature oversized cheque in hand, our team donated the profits to BCN earlier this week. Plans are already in the pipeline for next year’s BCN campaign and in the meantime, we will continue our open support for this amazing charity and the work they do.
“On behalf of everyone at Breast Cancer Now, I want to say a huge thank you to Fairfax & Favor and their customers for their incredibly generous donation of almost £25,000. This dedicated fundraising will help Breast Cancer Now to provide support for today and hope for the future for anyone affected by breast cancer, through the charity’s world-class research and life-changing care.” – Lisa (Head of Regional Community Fundraising at Breast Cancer Now)
If you have purchased anything from any of our Breast Cancer Now ranges over the past 5 years, then please send or tag us in photos of your products. We love to see the growing community of Fairfax & Favor support for the charity. In previous years we have been endorsed by the likes of household names such as sport reporter Clare Balding, Olympic gold medallist Charlotte Dujardin, reality TV star Georgia Toffolo, and ex-pussycat doll Kimberly Wyatt. The F&F Facebook page has been flooded with support for our campaign and we love hearing the positive responses.
