Johnsons Coffee Powers Up Action Cancer

23 August 2018

Action Cancer and Johnsons Coffee have announced a year-long partnership aimed at raising awareness and funds for the charity’s range of cancer prevention, early detection and support services.

To kick start the partnership, Johnsons Coffee have donated a state of the art Jura Coffee machine and Johnsons Bellagio Coffee beans blend to ‘The Engine Room’- the powerhouse of the charity’s fundraising efforts located in Action Cancer’s new premises on Windsor Avenue, Belfast.

Philip Mills, Group Sales Director at Johnsons Coffee said, “We are delighted to be once again supporting Action Cancer. As a family run, local company, we are proud to be associated with Northern Ireland’s leading, local cancer charity and supporting them to save lives and support people affected by cancer in the community.”

Lucy McCusker, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Action Cancer said, “This is our fourth year in partnership with Johnsons Coffee. To date the company has helped us to raise a phenomenal £210,000 through our Paint The Town Pink Campaign for our life saving services. Thank you to Johnsons for your continued support, we value everything that you do for Action Cancer.”

Throughout the year, Johnsons Coffee will be supporting Action Cancer through a variety of fundraising initiatives including; Paint The Town Pink and the Cappuccino Club. These specific campaigns raise funds and awareness for the charity’s unique breast screening service for women aged 40-49 and 70+ (outside of the NHS screening age range).

Every year Action Cancer screens 10,000 women for breast cancer. For every 1,000 screenings, 5 or 6 women have their cancer detected by Action Cancer when it may have gone unnoticed, with peace of mind being provided to the majority of women. Ladies who fall into this age category can book a free mammogram at www.actioncancer.org or call 028 9080 3344.
