BP Australia will donate a portion of the next week’s-worth of fuel sales to the McGrath Foundation, in support of the Breast Care Nurses who care for thousands of families around the nation that are affected by breast cancer.
VP sales and marketing Brooke Miller said this is the fifth year running that the fuel retailer has offered its support to the McGrath Foundation.
“We’re truly thrilled to be able to work with such an amazing organisation,” she said.
“During our partnership, we’ve raised more than $1.2 million to support the McGrath Foundation in placing more Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia.
“This year we wanted to honour their work and show people the difference their donations are making; without it these nurses wouldn’t be able to support the patients and families experiencing breast cancer.”
BP and the McGrath Foundation will also share stories about the Breast Care Nurses across social media, to show the public a behind-the-scenes view into their daily lives, and the positive impact they have on the lives of patients, and the families and friends who support them during their treatments.
McGrath Foundation ambassador and director Tracy Bevan said the company was an important and ongoing supporter of the work done by the nurses, who provide invaluable physical, psychological and emotional support to patients and their families, from the time of diagnosis and throughout the treatment process.
“Through our partnership we are able to offer all Australians the opportunity to make a difference just by filling up,” she said.
“This year’s campaign highlights the incredible work that our nurses do every day and gives the public a look into what drives our nurses and a bit about their story.”
“I’m fortunate to know the incredible nurses in our Foundation, and now Australia will have the chance to know them too,” Ms Bevan said.
BP customers wishing to support the McGrath Foundation can also make a donation at BP outlets without making a fuel purchase.
