Wow, we are speechless here at Q Towers which is a rarity! Thanks to all of your support and generosity, our three-hour Breast Cancer Care event, including donations, auctions and product sales, has raised over £500,000 for this fantastic charity! A record-breaking result!
QVC has supported Breast Cancer Care since 1999 and in total we have raised a huge £4 million for this fantastic charity.
Our lovely presenter Alison Keenan was diagnosed with breast cancer in January this year and she says, "Breast Cancer Care is an incredible charity that continues to make a difference to people's lives by ensuring they never face cancer alone. The whole QVC team is incredibly passionate about their involvement, and to have achieved a record donation is greatly rewarding for everyone." You can read more about her time on the night in her presenter blog.
Mrs White from Liverpool placed the winning bid of £6,350, which is the highest single bid ever recorded for a QVC auction. So congratulations and many thanks to her – she wanted the prize for her and her daughter who has recently come out of hospital.
Joe also performed on the night and said, "It's absolutely amazing to raise so much money for this fantastic charity by doing something that I love. I'm really looking forward to performing for Mrs White and her daughter Helen – we're going to have some fun! Thanks to everyone who helped make it a record breaking year for Breast Cancer Care!"
We also spoke to the Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Care, Samia al Qadhi, who said, "We are absolutely thrilled with the success of QVC's 'Be Aware, Show You Care' broadcast this week. It's a phenomenal achievement to raise over £500,000 and a fantastic way to celebrate the 12th year of our partnership.
QVC has raised over £4 million in that time for Breast Cancer Care, and that money means we can continue to provide our free support and information services for the 50,000 people who are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every year. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at QVC for their support, enthusiasm and dedication to the partnership."
