International Women's Day

04 February 2021 - 31 December 2021


International Women’s Day takes place on 8th March 2021.

This year Action Cancer is asking you to think about the inspirational women who have influenced your life. This could be your mother, sister, best friend, a former teacher, mentor or work colleague.

Our Breast Friends Campaign is all about celebrating with your loved ones while raising money for Action Cancer’s breast screening service.

Normally, we would be asking groups of friends to hold coffee mornings or girls’ nights in. This isn't possible at present so instead we are asking you to think about the ladies who have played a key role in your life.

Please help us to spread the message that early detection saves lives. You could hold a virtual catch up, take on a personal sponsored challenge or how about entering an all female team into the Belfast Marathon relay?  

Local online car insurance company its4women have generously pledged to match every pound that you raise for Breast Friends up to a value of £30,000. This means that your fundraising efforts will be doubled, providing twice as many breast screenings for local women.  

Get in touch for your free Breast Friends Fundraising Guide containing lots of ideas and tips on how to raise lots of cash.
