Saks Surpasses £150,000 for The Eve Appeal

Tuesday, 23 July 2019 10:10

Saks Hair & Beauty UK has nowraised £150k for The Eve Appeal  - another major milestone it its journey towards its target of £250k to aid research into the five women-only cancers of the womb, ovaries, cervix, vulva and vagina.

Most recently the UK-wide hair and beauty salon group joined an array of high-profile Eve ambassadors - including Karen Hobbs, Caroline Hirons and Cherry Healey - to support Eve’s #GETLIPPY campaign on social media in May, encouraging women – and men – to speak up and out about the signs and symptoms of women’s cancers. 

“I’m blown away by how everyone’s joined in with our ongoing fundraising activities," commented Janet King, Head of Marketing for the brand.  “I’d like to thank our customers, friends, families and – of course – our brilliant Saks teams for their continued contribution. A big part of our partnership is raising awareness. We’ve got to keep teaching our daughters the correct language to use so they’re not embarrassed to talk to their GPs about gynaecological issues. Vagina is not a dirty word!” 

Since 2015, Saks teams have blow-dried, baked, cycled, massaged, nail-painted, pants paraded, ran, raffled, sky-dived, spray-tanned, walked, waxed and zip-wired their way to £150k. 

“Target smashing Team Saks have done it again,” added Athena Lamnisos, Chief Executive of The Eve Appeal. “We are so thrilled to have Saks as our brilliant charity partner. The enthusiasm, commitment and support that everyone has given to prevent women’s cancers with life-saving research makes such a difference. The conversations that happen with customers are vital and research shows that talking openly about signs and symptoms is a powerful tool in making sure that these cancers are diagnosed earlier. We can’t wait to see what else is planned. The biggest thank you from all at Eve - staff, volunteers, trustees, researchers and of course, the women affected by these cancers and their loved ones.”
