HIPPO supporting Children with Cancer UK

Published:  26 April, 2016

HIPPO, the adhesives, sealants and decorating sundries brand, is supporting Children with Cancer UK this year as its chosen charity. For every promotional pack of HIPPO Heavy Duty Trade Wipes sold, HIPPO will make a donation of 50p to Children with Cancer UK.

Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Funding life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer and working to protect young lives through essential welfare programmes.

Guy Malam, managing director of HIPPO parent company Tembé DIY & Building Products said: “Cancer is the biggest child-killing disease in the UK. Almost 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every year and the incidence has been on the increase. There are more than 50 types of childhood cancer. Thanks to research funded by Children with Cancer UK survival rates for the most common form of childhood cancer, leukaemia, have increased dramatically over the past 50 years, but for some rare types of cancer survival rates remain at zero. Tembé are proud to continue doing its part to help raise money for a cure.”
