Local store helps fight against breast cancer
Staff at Furniture Connexions Galway are doing their bit for charity by helping to raise money for breast cancer charities with the launch of a limited edition Slumberland pink bed in association with the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
For every sale of the pink bed, a donation of €60 goes directly to the Pink Ribbon Foundation (reg charity no 1080839) which provides financial support to Irish breast cancer charities.
The stylish pink bed will complement any bedroom with its expertly designed pink mattress and base. The specially designed pink bed is available to purchase this month to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. As an additional bonus customers will receive four free pocket sprung pillows with every 4’6, 5’0”, or 6’0” divan set purchased.
“Poor sleep is a growing public health problem and is important to our wellbeing,” said store manager Kilian Coyle. “Our lives rest on the three pillars of food, exercise, and sleep to avoid a state of imbalance. Studies have also shown that how well you sleep may determine how well your body fights cancer and may help explain how your mental wellbeing plays into cancer recovery and progression.”
Worldwide approximately one million per year develop the disease and in Ireland approximately 2,500 are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.
“Slumberland was an obvious partner for the production of the pink bed,” said Jonathan Prince, chairman of the Pink Ribbon Foundation. “The product not only supports the fight against cancer, but helps generally raise awareness of the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Consumers across Ireland will love the bed, not only for its look, but its exceptional comfort. Slumberland have been committed to the cause developing world-class technology to provide a bed that can support all areas of a person’s wellbeing.”
