McGinley Support Services to host Big Pink to support families facing breast cancer

Facts about breast cancer

Rebecca Meggs, Marketing Communications Manager says: “My colleague was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago and I am looking forward to giving something back by hosting a Big Pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. We’d love all our offices across the UK to join in, baking some delicious pink treats and holding office games and competitions. ”

Fiona West, Fundraising Officer at Breast Cancer Care, added: “We’re so grateful to McGinley Support Services for holding a Big Pink in aid of Breast Cancer Care. The money they raise will help the charity to continue to provide a unique range of free support including; reliable information, one-to-one support over the phone and online from nurses and people who’ve been diagnosed themselves. An estimated 691,000 people in the UK are currently living with a breast cancer diagnosis so there has never been such an urgent need for our support services.”
