Our partnership with Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, will help raise awareness and vital funding for the fight against breast cancer. Through this exciting partnership, EDF Energy employees will be a force for good, helping to stop breast cancer taking the lives of the women we love.
Our three-year partnership with Breast Cancer Now will see EDF Energy employees help raise £450,000, take up volunteering opportunities and help raise awareness of the charity’s work.
We’ll be adding to our employee fundraising stories below to keep you updated on how our staff progress with their target.
October marked Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to celebrate the launch of our new partnership, EDF Energy employees showed their support for Breast Cancer Now by hosting #wearitpink days across the company. To get us on the way to our £450,000 fundraising target our employees dressed in pink, organised bake sales and held office competitions such as the 'pinkest desk decoration'.
#wearitpink is Breast Cancer Now’s biggest, pinkest fundraising day, and every year it raises around £2 million for life-saving research projects.
Breast Cancer Now launched a new app during Breast Cancer Awareness month. The app is aimed to help women get into the habit of checking their breasts regularly by setting up a routine that’s simple, easy and fits with their life. They’ll also receive reminders when it’s time to check. The app is free to download from the Apple Store and Google Play.
