Husqvarna Launches Global Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

On Friday 14th October Husqvarna is running a charity giveaway on Facebook in aid of Breast Cancer Care UK to increase awareness and raise money to help in the fight against breast cancer.

You can contribute by simply entering the giveaway on Husqvarna’s Facebook page and at the end of the day one lucky winner will be randomly selected to walk away with a money can’t buy, PINK Husqvarna 450 Rancher chainsaw, the only one in the UK.

In order to enter, you must comment on our Facebook post on Friday 14th October with the most inspirational woman to you. (no other day will count).

Husqvarna will also donate £1 for every like on the post throughout the day to Breast Cancer Care UK.

Breast cancer is currently the most common cause of cancer death for females, and is the second most common cancer overall. There is currently no cure for breast cancer — which is why research is of vital importance.

Join in the fight with us
