Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness 2020

This month Cpl are supporting the Irish Cancer Society in raising funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness month. During the month of October the Irish Cancer Society rellies on people across Ireland to hold a Pinkevent to raise vital life-saving funds and support breast cancer research and support services.

Nearly 3,000 women a year are diagnosed with breast cancer in Ireland. Breast cancer is the second-most common cancer in women, after non-melanoma skin cancer. While much progress has been made in treating and surviving breast cancer, over 700 women die each year because of this disease.

This year, as our teams continue to work remotely, we 'went pink' virtually asking teams from across the Group to wear pink and share their images to raise awareness. Donations of over €2,400 were also made to the Irish Cancer Society.
