Cancer Research UK Unity Bands for World Cancer Day

February 4th 2018 is World Cancer Day. BearHugs is very proud to have teamed up with Cancer Research UK to help spread the word with Cancer Research Unity Bands.

Cancer Research UK says “our Unity Bands are the core symbol of World Cancer Day, we want as many people wearing these as possible to show their support for Cancer Research UK. Today as many people survive cancer as die from cancer, but there’s still much more to do. When you wear a unity band, you’re helping to beat cancer.

Like many people, the BearHugs team has first-hand experience of how difficult it is when a loved one is fighting cancer, and we feel honoured that many of our customers trust BearHugs enough to send BearHugs gifts to their loved ones going through these tough times.

So when we were approached by Cancer Research UK, we were more than happy to join the campaign.

When you place any order through the BearHugs website, you will be given the option to add a Unity Band to your order for £2, which will go straight to Cancer Research UK. 

You can also purchase a Unity Band and other World Cancer Day fundraising items directly through the Cancer Research UK shop.

World Cancer Day is the one day in the year when the whole of the UK joins to show that together we are stronger than cancer.

Every Unity Band worn, every pound donated and every gesture of support has played an important part in beating cancer sooner.
