Breast Friends

11 September 2019 - 31 December 2020

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Action Cancer along with local online insurance provider, are calling on everyone across Northern Ireland to celebrate friendship with loved ones and encourage the ladies in your lives to be breast aware.

Breast Friends is all about getting together with your friends and family to raise funds for Action Cancer’s life saving breast screening service.

We are delighted to continue our partnership with local online car insurance company for a second year. The team has generously pledged to match every pound that you raise up to a value of £30,000.  In 2019, we collectively raised £53,000, meaning 440 women received a free breast screening appointment.

So, if a group of friends got together and raised £240, then our good friends at will give us another £240! Or, put another way, that £240 is two breast screenings and provide the funds for another two breast screenings.

We want you to be safe when organising your fundraiser, so make sure that whatever you plan, you choose to social distance or go virtual! You can check that your gathering is in line with current coronavirus guidelines on
