Most recent figures show that in Ireland over 2,800 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 718 women die from breast cancer each year.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and each year with the help of ‘Pink Partners’ the Irish Cancer Society is raising money and awareness for breast cancer thanks to ‘Pink Partners’ thinking pink with their products.

The money donated from this year’s generous ‘Pink Partners’ will go towards the society’s work in breast cancer research, advocacy and free nationwide services for those affected by breast cancer all over Ireland.

This October the Irish Cancer Society has a number of ‘Pink Partners’ on board to support work in breast cancer, many of whom hail from the agricultural sector.

These include:

The Chanelle Group are selling a special Tribex 10% ‘Pink’ Promotion pack, which is used to treat liver fluke – a €5 donation will be made directly by Chanelle for every pack sold to Irish farmers, Co-ops, merchants and veterinary surgeons throughout Ireland.

Dairygold Co-Op sold Pink Bale Wrap throughout their 39 store locations and in their online shop www.coopsuperstores.ie. The pink bales were in massive demand during silage season and the wraps sold out. Pink wrapped bales are now in fields around the country and a percentage of the proceeds has been donated to the Irish Cancer Society.

Kiernan Milling are this year celebrating their 35th year in business as one of Ireland’s largest feedstuff producers. To coincide with this landmark, the company have become ‘Pink Partners’ with the Irish Cancer Society and will donate one euro from the sale of each 25kg bag of their Buffalo Beef Nuts they sell during October.
