07 Oct easyJet’s Southend and Stansted based flights set to make life-saving journeys
Europe’s leading airline, easyJet, has this week launched a six-week campaign to make life-saving journeys on board Southend and Stansted based aircraft – helping to fund cutting-edge research into breast cancer and prostate cancer.
easyJet’s collaboration with Breast Cancer Now and Prostate Cancer UK will see cabin crew based at Southend and Stansted championing on board collections by encouraging passengers to donate their spare change of any currency on flights between 1 – 21 October and 29 October – 18 November.
Money raised by passengers and crews will help both charities fund research into prevention, early detection, and treatment of breast and prostate cancer – in turn saving the lives of women and men across the UK.
Soaring to new heights, cabin crew have also been given an opportunity to don special charity branded uniform, including ties, neck scarves, pink and blue epaulettes and pin badges, to further show their support to the causes.
Breast cancer and prostate cancer are the most common cancers in men and women in the UK, with 482 women diagnosed with breast cancer and 404 men diagnosed with prostate cancer in Southend and Stansted each year.
The collections will take place on board easyJet’s 10 Southend and Stansted based aircraft. In addition, easyJet staff will continue their efforts by hosting their own fundraising activities at Southend and Stansted airports.
