The National Breast Cancer Foundation has presented a Patron’s Award to Pandora for its ongoing funding commitment to breast cancer research.
Governor-General Quentin Bryce presented the ‘Corporate Commitment to the Cause Award 2011’ to Pandora president Karin Adcock at a ceremony at Admiralty House.
Since 2005 Pandora has donated an uncapped amount to the NBCF from the sale of Pink Ribbon jewellery.
Created by Danish designer Lone Frandsen, the Pink Ribbon collection of sterling silver and 14 carat gold jewellery is available not only in Pink Ribbon month (October) but throughout the year.
Accepting the award, Adcock said the company is pleased to make a difference to the many women that are touched by cancer and to support NBCF in its quest for finding a cure.
“We are delighted and honoured to receive this award,” she said.
“We have supported this cause because we genuinely believe that research funding will lead to a cure of this prevalent disease.
“We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer and understand that it is not just the person who suffers when this illness strikes, but their families, their work colleagues and their friends. That’s why this is such an important cause for us.”
