BBQ for Boobs
Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation (HBCF) is asking businesses to get their boobs and BBQs out this September through November in support of women and men living with breast cancer in the Hunter region. Approximately 600 people are diagnosed in the Hunter each year and HBCF provides practical support with transport to treatment, house cleaning, lawn mowing, free wigs, comfort care packs for after breast surgery and survivorship programs. Businesses are being asked to host a workplace BBQ with staff donating to HBCF whatever they would normally spend on their lunch. Each registering business will receive a pack filled with an apron, tongs, tea towel, chef hat and balloons.
Once the fun starts, businesses are encouraged to enter their best pics in the social media competition with the winner receiving a BBQ and two runners up receiving a 2-hour Recruitment Health Check by principle sponsor peoplefusion.
“When HBCF approached us to sponsor this campaign, it was a very quick decision to jump on board and support the initiative. Peoplefusion donates 10% of annual profits to local charities, and the BBQ for Boobs is a great way for other local businesses to show their support to such a valuable charity whilst at the same time creating meaningful social activity that adds to the workplace culture,” said Ali Kimmorley, Director of peoplefusion.
