Due to the high demand we've been experiencing in Membership queries and renewals, we are opening our phone lines this Saturday for our supporters to purchase Memberships.
To celebrate Breast Cancer Care's Tackled Pink day, The Stoop will be awash with pink. Look out for volunteers collecting funds, dressed head to toe in pink, or visit Breast Cancer Care's information point stationed within the ladies lounge. A Breast Cancer Care Nurse will be on hand to answer any questions and there will be an array of breast awareness information to take away and share with friends, family and colleagues.
You can also choose to make a donation by text message to help the charity continue their vital work.
Using JustTextGiving by Vodaphone, supporters on Saturday can simply text the words "Quinn55 £3" to 70070 to donate £3 to Breast Cancer Care. The text message itself is completely free and a £3 donation will be added to your monthly bill or deducted from your phone credit.
Harlequins' full back, Mike Brown said:
'The Tackled Pink game is all about showing support for the 50,000 people who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Premiership club rugby is a great sport for all the family to enjoy and it's a chance to wear pink and show your support, while enjoying world class rugby.'
Quote from Claire Pulford, Head of Events at Breast Cancer Care:
'We're extremely grateful to the Harlequins and their supporters for raising funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Care. We rely on the generosity of people like you and we hope that the text donation service will encourage anyone at the game to send in a donation. You can be confident that every penny will be put towards helping people affected by breast cancer.'
