The Zip Yard supports the Irish Cancer Society Paint it Pink campaign for a second year by donating 50 percent of turnover in each of their 26 shops throughout the country on Friday, October 30 to the cause. They are also giving a 15 percent discount on repairs, alterations or restyling of garments bought in any of the 20 Irish Cancer Society charity stores nationwide for the month of October. Customers simply bring their item and receipt to their local Zip Yard.

Paint it Pink is a fun way for people to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society’s work across breast cancer, funding vital research, advocacy and services to those affected by breast cancer.

For the month of October, The Zip Yard 15 Thomas Street, Limerick will join the other 25 stores throughout the country and turn pink as they raise funds through bake sales, coffee mornings,  sponsored walks and runs. With over 20 charity shops throughout the country, those wishing to support the campaign will have the opportunity to bring their charity purchases to the The Zip Yard and in doing so raise additional funds.

Commenting on the partnership, Siobhan Quinn Manager of The Zip Yard Limerick  says, “We are delighted to support this great cause for a second year and are confident we will increase last year’s contribution of €10,000 to €12,500. Our Sew Pink Day on October 30 will be a great focus when we will give 50% of turnover to the Irish Cancer Society.”

The Irish Cancer Society, Corporate Officer, Susie Cunningham commented: “We are most excited to have The Zip Yard on board once again as one of our Pink Partners and appreciate all of their efforts in raising funds which will go a long way to help in the fight against breast cancer.”
