Argos launches sunshine-themed pendant to support The Irish Cancer Society

Milton Keynes, UK, 2016-Jul-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — Let your light shine this summer as Argos launches its exclusive pendant for The Irish Cancer Society.

The sunshine-themed pendant is available in Argos stores and online from 16 July retailing at €41.99. Of this, €5 from every sale will help fund the Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Centres, which support people affected by cancer in Ireland by providing cancer information, support and advice in local communities.

The pendant will add a little sparkle to any outfit 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, and with €5 from each sale going straight to The Irish Cancer Society, you’ll be helping to fund Cancer Nurses in Daffodil Centres around Ireland.

“We’re so proud to be supporting The Irish Cancer Society, and hope the sales of these pendants will help make a real difference to the lives of those affected by cancer.”

John McCormack, CEO of the Irish Cancer Society, added: “The money Argos customers will raise with every pendant sold goes towards funding vital support provided to cancer patients and their families through Daffodil Centres. These are walk-in cancer information and support centres managed by experienced cancer nurses, and in 2015 the 13 centers in Ireland dealt with 42,478 enquiries.

“We couldn’t support the 170,000 people living with and beyond cancer in Ireland today without your help, and we’re really grateful to every single person who purchases a pendant whether for themselves, a loved one or a friend. Together, we won’t give up until cancer does.”

Since voting to support The Irish Cancer Society as their Irish charity partner last year, Argos colleagues and customers have raised nearly €80,000, funding over 3,000 hours of vital Irish Cancer Society nursing care to support people affected by cancer in Ireland.
