Dulux and Cancer Society - working together

Dulux and Cancer Society - working together

The Cancer Society of New Zealand is delighted to announce a new partner to strengthen the annual sun safe campaign.

Dulux New Zealand has teamed up with the Cancer Society to help raise funds and awareness of the need for Kiwi DIYers and trade painters to protect themselves in the sun this summer.

Dulux will donate money from all sales of the exterior paint, Dulux Weathershield, to the Cancer Society and provide in-store sun protection giveaways during December 2007 and January and February 2008.

Dulux has always helped New Zealanders protect their homes from the sun’s harmful rays. This campaign will enable the company to also help people to protect themselves.

The new partnership is being officially launched by Associate Minister of Health Hon Peter Dunne at a breakfast event in Wellington at the Dulux Trade store in Marion Street on Tuesday at 8.30am.
