Little Greene Paint Company join forces with Breast Cancer Haven, to Paint It Pink

For the seventh year running, the Little Greene Paint Company has joined forces with national charity, Breast Cancer Haven, to promote and support Breast Cancer Awareness month.

For the whole of October 2017, Little Greene customers will be actively helping to support people with breast cancer. Little Greene has pledged that 15p from every tin of paint and roll of wallpaper sold via the company’s 270 UK-wide stockists, or through its website, will be donated directly to Breast Cancer Haven. With centres in London, Hereford, Yorkshire, Wessex and Worcester, Breast Cancer Haven is the only national breast cancer charity that provides one-to-one support to improve the quality of life of anyone affected by breast cancer. Breast Cancer Haven’s programme of care costs around £1,500 to deliver to each visitor and the charity relies on donations from individuals and organisations to deliver its services.

Speaking of the collaboration, Managing Director David Mottershead says: “What better way to support a charity and raise awareness than to pick a shade of pink to brighten up your home? Last year our loyal customers raised just over £12,000 for the charity – and I’m completely confident that we’ll beat that record total this year. Pink is such a joyous colour that imbues the home with a sense of life and wellbeing – the same focus that Breast Cancer Haven adopts to help improve the quality of life those affected by cancer. Breast Cancer Haven provides free personalised care and support for patients nationally and the funds Little Greene helps raise make a significant difference.”

Pamela Healy OBE, Breast Cancer Haven’s Chief Executive adds: “This is the seventh 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 life-affirming services. Pink is the colour of the moment, so update your home all the while knowing that you’re supporting a fantastic charity. Paint it pink in October!”
