On average, four children up to the age of 16 are diagnosed with cancer very week in Ireland. That is a fact.
In support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, CCF – Ireland’s leading charity supporting the fight against this disease – is hoping to change that statistic and light up their text lines by giving those who make a €4 donation the chance to win a Limited Edition Opel ADAM.
You read right! Childhood Cancer Foundation (CCF) supporters have a chance to win an Opel ADAM when they make their donation of €4* by simply texting “GOLDOPEL” to 50300. As proud supporters of CCF for the past three years, Opel Ireland recruited the help of ambassador and artist Pan Cooke (@TheRealPan), along with children currently battling and recovering from cancer, to create a fun roof design on this special car in his own unique style.
Emily Barry, Senior Brand and PR Manager for Opel Ireland said: “For most of us our early years were carefree, happy and fun, but for those battling this desperate disease, their reality can be very different. It is because of this that we are delighted to be in the position to support our partners in Childhood Cancer Foundation by donating the Opel ADAM, but also through our collaboration with the incredibly talented Pan Cooke, who’s unique roof design is a real celebration of childhood innocence. We’re hopeful that this latest campaign will help raise vital funds for the charity, but perhaps more importantly shine a light on a very real issue that has such a profound and devastating effect on so many families in this country.”
Laura Cullinan of Childhood Cancer Foundation said: “We are delighted to partner with Opel Ireland and The Real Pan for this exciting initiative. I would ask people to support our work and projects by simply texting GOLDOPEL for €4 to 50300. This campaign will help us to continue to raise awareness of childhood cancer and the devastation that a cancer diagnosis brings to children, their families and indeed their local communities. Every donation will assist us to continue to fund our projects at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin and other shared care hospitals around Ireland. One lucky winner will drive away with this unique car at the end of what we hope will be a much talked about and successful campaign”
