rijo42 Promises was proud to support Genesis again at their FUNKraiser ball on the 19th March 2016. The event marked the Breast Cancer Prevention Charity’s 20th Anniversary. Scores of people turned out in their finery to raise funds and journey through an era of FUNK.

Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Centre is based on the University of South Manchester in Wythenshawe. It provides the base for one of the most ambitious Breast Cancer research programmes in Europe. Genesis aim to make Breast Cancer a preventable disease for the next generation. rijo42 is incredibly proud to be a part of the ground-breaking work this incredible charity performs.

rijo42 and our registered charity, rijo Promises, have supported Genesis Breast since June 2012, when we installed one of our Brasil commercial coffee machines at the onsite coffee shop. We have since supported several fundraisers for the charity, the most recent being the FUNKraiser Ball, which raised over £80,000.00 for the charity.

rijo42 took a table at the event and bought several prizes in the auction, donating over £3,000.00 on the evening.

Since we started working with Genesis, we have donated over £8,500.00 to the charity for vital research into Breast Cancer. We have supported through cash pledges and the donation of state-of-the-art commercial coffee machines. The work that Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention carry out is invaluable and we look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come.
