Early in 2015 we launched a 2-year partnership with the UK’s leading hair and beauty salon group, Saks Hair & Beauty.
Saks is committed to raising awareness of women’s cancers by using the time that stylists and therapists spend with customers to talk about the often taboo and too-little talked about subject – gynaecological cancers. Now three years later, and Saks have pledged to raise a phenomenal £250,000 by 2020.
The initial 2-year partnership has been absolutely amazing, and now in it’s third year, has seen seen Saks continue to smash through their targets, reaching £136,226 date. Through a combination of fantastic events in and out of the salon, as well as mammoth sporting challenges, Saks is one of Eve’s most committed partners.
Athena Lamnisos, CEO of The Eve Appeal, said: “Target smashing Team Saks have done it again! Past the midway mark of reaching a fundraising target that will help us save women’s lives through raising awareness and funding world-class research. We’re so thrilled to count Saks as a special partner and have the whole Saks team championing Eve and women’s health up and down the country, all year round. Baking, running, taking on challenges, organising super-glizty and glam events – all to make the cancers that affect far too many mums, daughters, sisters and friends. There’s so much power in Saks4Eve. We can’t wait to see what they’ve got planned for 2019!”
At the heart of everything that Saks do is their desire to transform the way women look and feel. Their big objective is to show just how much they care about women by supporting The Eve Appeal, so why not join us to get Saksy in the name of women’s cancers.
