More than 10 events will take place around Donegal this month as part of the Cups Against Cancer project for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This October, Centra stores are hosting coffee mornings and pink walks to support the Irish Cancer Society in the fight against breast cancer.

This year’s Cups Against Cancer was launched by DJ Doireann Garrihy, the Irish Cancer Society’s Cancer Nurseline Manager Naomi Fitzgibbon, and businesswoman Pippa O’Connor.
Centra ambassador, Pippa O’Connor said, “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a cause that I am proud to support and I’m delighted that Centra is joining the Irish Cancer Society to fight against breast cancer.
“As a Centra ambassador I am delighted to let the public know that Centra have officially launched their coffee mornings and pink walks to commence throughout October in order to raise vital funds for this important initiative.”
