October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, the annual campaign to raise awareness about the realities of this debilitating disease, the risks and the value of screening and early detection. This should be top of mind for every one of us, especially since according to CANSA, one in every four South Africans is affected by cancer, whether via diagnosis of self, family or friends.

To join in the support of the courageous women bravely fighting breast cancer, The Gin Box has put together a limited edition Breast Cancer Awareness Gin Box for R250 with all proceeds going to three charities, The Pink Drive, Breast Health Foundation and Reach for Recovery, all of which are dedicated to providing support and resources for women with breast cancer.

“Fighting cancer is particularly relevant to me as my Dad passed away 16 years ago after battling this disease for 2 years. Our own family leaned on the support of incredible causes like these and for this reason, I feel very strongly that we need to support these initiatives,” says Jean Buckham, founder of The Gin Box.

Each Breast Cancer Awareness Gin Box contains a 50ml Musgrave Pink Gin, Fitch & Leedes Pink Tonic, Sweet Temptations Turkish Delight Toffee, Ouhuis Rooibos Tea, Sperlari alla Frutta nougat, Gingerbon and Comprehensive Distillers Notes, all couriered straight to your door.

 To purchase the special edition Breast Cancer Awareness Gin Box, visit The Gin Box website.
