Proud to provide direct support to the Relay for Life Movement campaign in Belgium
Cancer touches all of our lives in some way or another. This is why Xeikon didn’t think twice when it was asked to support leading Belgium charity Foundation Against Cancer in 2015.
Founded in 1924 to fight against cancer, the Foundation Against Cancer funds scientific cancer research in Belgium and provides information and social support to people with cancer and their families.
The agreement ensures that Xeikon now supply – either directly or via its customer printers – free printed material on its high quality digital printing systems. Communication tools that would have previously eaten into the charities budget ensure that more funds can be better utilised for research or patient support. The tools, being supplied by Xeikon, simply make more money available for the Foundation’s missions.
“We are proud to provide direct support to the Relay for Life Movement campaign in Belgium being run by such a worthwhile charity,” states Danny Mertens, Xeikon’s Corporate Communications Manager. “When a former colleague contacted us and asked us to support the charity, we couldn’t wait to help the Foundation against Cancer’s fight against all forms of cancer.
“As such, we provide – free of charge – a range of printed matter on different substrates. They will be mostly small runs, often personalised, high quality print. It also includes small to medium run length flyers and posters, personalised large format cheques used at fundraising events, name cards for local Relay for Life Committees, large banners with team images, floor and wall displays.”
Luc Van Haute, CEO of Foundation Against Cancer Belgium, comments: “Foundation Against Cancer finances scientific cancer research, supports patients, raises awareness and spreads messages to prevent cancer. It communicates with the general public through information and prevention campaigns. Every euro we don’t spend as a cost – any type of cost – is a euro we can use for research, social support and prevention.”
