JEWELLERS F. HINDS STANDS UP TO CANCER
Jewellers F. Hinds is supporting Stand Up To Cancer by selling a new, limited edition arrow charm and band, designed by British fashion designer Henry Holland in aid of the campaign. Stand Up To Cancer is a joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, which raises money to fund vital research which will get new and better treatments to cancer patients faster.
All 111 F. Hinds stores across England and Wales will be selling the £5.00 band with 100% of the proceeds donated to the campaign. The charm and band are also available to buy online at www.fhinds.co.uk. Designed in the bold Stand Up To Cancer colours – orange, black, red and white – the Stand Up charm is a defiant statement in support of Stand Up To Cancer. The black and white slide-through wrist band shouts out the message loud and clear, and is a stylish symbol to show your support for the campaign.
The charm and band will help to raise vital funds that will accelerate groundbreaking research, bringing treatments to UK patients faster and saving more lives. Stand Up To Cancer will culminate in an epic live TV event hosted by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr Christian Jessen on Friday, October 17. The trio will front a star studded night of television, jam packed with programming from entertainment and science to documentaries.
