Dandara raises funds for Breast Cancer Now's Wear It Pink

Dandara has donated £4,050 to Breast Cancer Now to help in the fight against the disease which claims more than 11,500 lives in the UK every year.

The independent housebuilder took part in ‘wear it pink’ day on 20 October, organising a host of activities and donating £50 from the sale of each home reserved in October to the charity.

The annual fundraising event is organised by Breast Cancer Now, whose mission is to make sure that by 2050 everyone diagnosed with breast cancer lives and is supported to live well. The event has raised over £39m since it began in 2001 and helps fund Breast Cancer Now’s world-class research and life-changing support.

Kinie Kaur, wear it pink manager from Breast Cancer Now, commented: “We want to say a huge heartfelt thank you to Dandara and their customers for supporting wear it pink and raising such an incredible amount. Every 10 minutes someone in the UK hears the words ‘you have breast cancer.’ Breast Cancer Now’s world-class research and life-changing support simply wouldn’t be possible without the support of fundraisers like Dandara.”

Trevor Dempsey, Dandara CEO, said: “I would like to thank everyone who supported wear it pink, whether by hosting a coffee morning, donating some home baking or just going along and putting their hands in their pockets to help support the charity.

We are also very grateful to our amazing buyers who reserved new Dandara homes in October and helped us to make this donation possible.”

Dandara is currently building new homes in Scotland, England, Wales and the Channel Islands. Dandara is one of the UK’s largest independent property development companies, with over 10,000 happy customers and more than 100 industry awards for design and quality.
