KPMG Malta goes pink for Pink Oc­to­ber

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

KPMG ended the month of Oc­to­ber on a phil­an­thropic good note, as it joined one of Malta’s largest fundrais­ing and aware­ness ini­tia­tives, the Pink Oc­to­ber cam­paign.

All KPMG em­ploy­ees, in­clud­ing Part­ners and Di­rec­tors were en­cour­aged to re­port to work wear­ing a touch of pink on Tues­day 30th Oc­to­ber, with the aim of rais­ing more aware­ness about breast can­cer and how it can be pre­vented. What’s more, em­ploy­ees were wel­comed to the of­fice with the sweet aroma of pink cup­cakes, which they could en­joy against a small do­na­tion to­wards the cause. This ini­tia­tive was or­gan­ised by KPMG’s So­cial and CSR Com­mit­tee.

KPMG are proud that for an- other year, the firm con­trib­uted to the fight against breast can­cer. “One in eight women will face the fight against can­cer dur­ing her life­time. How­ever, early de­tec­tion can help save lives,” ex­plained Ms. Doreen Fenech, Head of KPMG’s So­cial and CSR Com­mit­tee. She em­pha­sised that, nev­er­the­less, de­tect­ing can­cer at an early stage ne­ces­si­tates lots of ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port. Thus, in­creas­ing can­cer aware­ness and en­cour­ag­ing the staff to do reg­u­lar health check-ups is al­ways a pri­or­ity on KPMG’s agenda. All pro­ceeds col­lected dur­ing the day will go to­wards the Ac­tion For Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.
