The Kids’ Cancer Project is proud to announce a multi-year partnership with Lorraine Lea, a family owned and run homewares business.
The independent national charity supports bold scientific research that has the greatest chance of clinical success in the improvement of treatments of childhood cancer; the disease that kills more Australian kids than any other.
Three decades ago, Peter and Heather Ryan started selling linen out of their garage in Melbourne’s south-east. Now their son, Adrian is at the helm.
“Lorraine Lea established the Party for Kids with Cancer fund 18 years ago in honour of my father, who lost his battle with cancer in 1999,” said Mr Ryan.
“We’re excited about this next chapter of our philanthropic efforts and look forward to funding innovative research through The Kids’ Cancer Project for many years to come.”
Owen Finegan, The Kids’ Cancer Project CEO is equally thrilled with the partnership.
“The Kids’ Cancer Project is deeply grateful to be able to partner with Lorraine Lea. Our values of community spirit are well-aligned,” he said. “We’ll be working in unison to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer all around Australia.”
As the Party for Kids with Cancer partner, Lorraine Lea consultants will donate their own party profits to The Kids’ Cancer Project with fundraising efforts.
“We ask all our consultants to add an extra party to their program in June, with a view to them donating the commissions from those parties to the Party for Kids with Cancer program,” said Ryan.
“Every year we get a wonderful response from our community of consultants along with the broader community they’re reaching out to.”
Lorraine Lea will also make a $3 donation from the sale of every PJ or Heather Bear soft toy to the charity.
