Staff and customers from Screwfix have been fundraising to the max with Paddy McGuinness, as part of Everyman’s ‘Don’t Be a Spanner, Check Your Nuts’ campaign.
Screwfix staff and customers have pulled together to raise more than £50,000 in total through auctions, pop concerts, football matches, skydives and bungee jumps, all in the name of supporting the cause and raising awareness of testicular cancer.
The campaign kicked off earlier this year, fronted by comedian Paddy McGuinness. Since then, charity T-shirts have been flying off the shelves.
Sarah Taylor from Screwfix explains: “We’d really like to thank our customers for backing the campaign – through the sale of the T-shirts we’ve been able to raise much-needed funds for Everyman, as well as awareness of a really important issue.”
With millions of male customers at Screwfix, the company has the capacity to reach a large male audience which is why it pledged its support to the Everyman year-long campaign.
Commenting on the campaign, Paddy McGuinness said: “It’s so important that men check themselves regularly for lumps and bumps. Too many of us blokes are putting our health at risk by failing to check. It only takes a minute to have a quick check down below – after all, if it’s caught early, testicular cancer is 99% curable.”
