Milton Keynes, UK, 2016-Jul-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — Let your light shine this Christmas as Argos launches its exclusive pendant for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The sunshine-themed pendant is available in Argos stores and online from 16 July retailing at £27.99. Of this, £5 from every sale will be going to Macmillan to fund vital hours of nursing care, helping to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.
The pendant will add a little sparkle to anyone’s Christmas and features an uplifting message, making it a perfect gift for your loved ones.
Stephanie Wilkes, Jewellery Buyer at Argos, said: “This gorgeous pendant is the perfect way to light up the lives of your loved ones this Christmas, and with £5 from each sale going straight to Macmillan, you’ll be helping to pay for vital hours of care from Macmillan nurses.
“We’re so proud to be supporting Macmillan, and hope the sales of these pendants will help make a real difference to the lives of those affected by cancer.”
Alix Wooding, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Macmillan Cancer Support, added: “Christmas can be a difficult time of year for many, especially those who have lost loved ones, and we know that lots of people feel lonely as festivities go on around them. The money Argos customers will raise with every pendant sold goes towards funding vital care and support from Macmillan nurses, helping people affected by cancer to feel less alone. I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who puts this pendant on their Christmas list, with your support Macmillan can make a real difference.”
Since voting to support Macmillan as their UK charity partner last year, Argos colleagues and customers have raised £1.2 million, funding over 44,000 hours of vital Macmillan nursing care to help Macmillan ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
