As we begin a New Year and look to forging new charity partnerships, we are grateful for the support we have received over the years. Most recently, we would like to thank you for the generous donations and encouragement for Jack Murphy, and his daughter Tina, who walked 100km along the Camino de Santiago in aid of Children in Crossfire. With your help, the father-daughter duo raised an amazing £4,772 for this very worthwhile cause.
In 2024, we will continue to support charities close to our hearts, and hope you will share in this with us. This January will see Jack Murphy Jewellers partner with Macmillan Cancer Support.
The three-month long partnership will utilise our strong social media following to help raise awareness of Macmillan Cancer Support and the specialist health care, information and financial support available to people affected by cancer.
To mark World Cancer Day, Jack Murphy Jewellers will host a Macmillan Coffee Morning and Cake Sale in our Newry Showroom on Friday 2nd February at 10am. We encourage you to join us and help us to raise money for people living with cancer.
Gemma Murphy, Partner at Jack Murphy Jewellers commented: “As a small business owner, I am proud to be able to support incredible local charities throughout the year. With each partnership, I am profoundly humbled and amazed at the challenges many of these charities have to overcome in order to maintain their invaluable services. Having seen first hand the services these charities provide, I cannot thank our team, customers and online community enough for continuing to help with our efforts in raising awareness for worthwhile charities like Macmillan Cancer Support.”
As a female dominated team, we will begin our charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support by raising cervical cancer awareness. Each year, more than 3,200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the UK. This type of cancer can affect all ages. Cervical Cancer Prevention Week runs from the 22nd to the 28th of January, with the aim of spreading awareness about cervical cancer and its effects. This type of cancer is curable with early detection and is also very slow to spread. If you’re worried about cervical cancer, or want to find out more about treatment, please visit the Macmillan Cancer Support website.
