Do you shop at Shoprite? Then, thank you!

Thanks to the generosity of Shoprite customers around the Island, today the Eve Appeal recived a boost of £454.79!

During the months of August and September, each Shoprite store offered Eve Appeal pins for a £1 donation. Warmest thanks to everyone who has purchased a pin!

Here's me (left) & Shoprite's Amanda Noble displaying the generous donations of Shoprite shoppers over August and Sept '09!

It was incredibly touching to open the donation boxes today and find 5, 10 and 20 pound notes- it goes to show how generous and behind the cause Manx residents are. We really care about women’s health and about finding a cure for women’s cancers.

Did you know
that three symptoms, if they occur on most days, can suggest ovarian cancer? You can read here what they are, as outlined in new guidance from the department of health.

I can't speak highly enough of Shoprite and their consistent efforts to champion causes close to many of our hearts on the Isle of Man. We're lucky to be raising awareness of the Eve Appeal through their connection! With this blustery November weather, sometimes it's hard to see the point in leaving the house... luckily, shopping still has to be done!

January 21, 2010 Update- 4 more Pin boxes, distributed to Shoprite stores over Christmas, have raised an extra £133.95! Thankyou for your generosity! If you've yet to get one- and they are very pretty- you'll be able to buy a pin from all Shoprite stores again in March- Ovarian Cancer awareness month.
