The Zip Yard, Ireland’s leading clothing and alterations boutique is delighted to have raised over €10,000 for a second year in a row to support the Irish Cancer Society’s Paint it Pink campaign.

The amount was raised through a range of activities in each of the 26 shops nationwide including a Sew Pink Day on October 30th when 50% of turnover in each shop was donated to the Irish Cancer Society.

Commenting on the partnership, Siobhan Quinn of The Zip Yard Limerick says: “We’re delighted to join up with our colleagues at The Zip Yard throughout the country to support this worthy cause and look forward continuing to support the Irish Cancer Society into the future”.

Mark Mellett, Head of Fundraising at The Irish Cancer Society comments “This is the second year that The Zip Yard has come on board as one of our Pink Partners and we very much appreciate the effort in raising this significant amount. This money will make a real and lasting difference to the lives of people affected by breast cancer and will help fund more research into better ways to diagnose and treat the disease”.

For the month of October, The Zip Yard Paint it Pink fundraiser was held at 15 Thomas Street, Limerick and joined the other 25 stores throughout the country who turned 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 had the opportunity to bring their charity purchases to the The Zip Yard and raise additional funds.
