Its4women was recognised for its CSR efforts, winning the Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility category at the bi-annual Causeway Coast and Glens Business Awards, for its work in partnership with Action Cancer.
Judges at the event, which is hosted by the Causeway Chamber, and took place at the Lodge Hotel in Coleraine, said: “The winner of this category really impressed the judges with their passion and the significant importance on Corporate Social Responsibility which strives to develop and deliver strategies and initiatives which aim to make a positive difference in the community.”
Mr McClarty continued: “Our team is at the heart of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) work. It is a key part of our strategy and we like to support local charities that resonate with our staff and the people living in Northern Ireland."
Since 2019, Action Cancer and MCL InsureTech’s Its4women brand have worked in collaboration to create a hard-hitting campaign with the ultimate goal of raising much needed funds from the general public. This includes the ‘Breast Friends’ campaign which has successfully raised over £99,000 and enabled Action Cancer to screen 1000 women across NI and as a result detect breast cancer in six or seven local women.
Mr McClarty added: “We are delighted to have been able to make such a positive impact with our partnership with Action Cancer and to win this category is an honour.”
