Breast Cancer Ireland & Cornmarket

Sadly, breast cancer affects the lives of many of our customers, family members and employees. We’re fighting back with Breast Cancer Ireland, a charity that fundraise to support research programmes nationally. They also actively promote Breast Cancer education, awareness and the importance of breast health among women of all ages.

Breast Health Schools Education and Awareness programme

We're delighted to be the main sponsor of Breast Cancer Ireland's Schools inititive. The aim of the outreach programme is to encourage and educate women on becoming breast aware at a younger age and to educate them about the disease so they can identify any early warning signs and take the necessary actions for a more positive outcome. The programme involves Breast Cancer Ireland’s nurses and outreach co-ordinators going out to visit schools throughout the country, to deliver a presentation that is designed to be friendly, informative and non-intrusive for both teachers and transition year students. To book a presentation in your school email smcgregor@bciresearch.ie

Battle of the Stars Event

We've been an associate sponsor of Breast Cancer Ireland's Battle of the Stars for the last 3 years. This dazzling celebrity gala has varied from the most recent Lip Sync to Strictly Come Dancing, where Irish stars compete on stage.  

We don’t just support the event – we take part! 

This year eight of our talented staff went through weeks of choreography and stage training to be ready for battle on the big night.
