Skellerup Industries is once again releasing a limited run of special edition Pink Band gumboots, from Monday 01 May 2023. Our team is delighted to continue our support of the life-saving mahi of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ (BCFNZ).
Pink Bands are available, while stocks last, from Farm Source, Farmlands or PGG Wrightson. Locations can be found on the Skellerup website.
Grab a pair to save a pair. Skellerup is donating five dollars from every pair of Pink Bands to BCFNZ, helping Aotearoa to move two steps closer to zero deaths attributed to this devastating disease.
Nine people are diagnosed with breast cancer in Aotearoa New Zealand every day. A whopping third of those diagnosed live in rural communities where taking time off the farm and accessing treatment can be challenging.
Hayley Gourley, Skellerup Agri Divisional Manager said: “After the response for Pink Bands the last two years we’re delighted to be able to support Breast Cancer Foundation NZ for a third year. It’s been wonderful seeing our retail partners and the public get behind the campaign with so much enthusiasm once again.”
Ah-Leen Rayner, chief executive of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, said: “The Pink Bands have been a hot ticket item the past two years so it’s fantastic to see them back on the shelves again, just in time for Pink Ribbon Breakfast month.
“We know a breast cancer diagnosis has added complexities for women in rural communities, so the Pink Bands are an excellent way to spark important conversations about breast health. We’re incredibly grateful to Skellerup for helping us to raise much needed funds and awareness to reach our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer.”
