Breast Cancer Now

 

  

We are proud to support Breast Cancer Now, the UK's largest breast cancer charity. They are dedicated to funding research into the devastating disease, which over 50,000 women are diagnosed with every year.

Town & Country has teamed up with Breast Cancer Now and will be donating 10 per cent of the RRP from three new products: bamboo gloves, bypass secateurs, and a gardening pouch to support the vital work being carried out by Breast Cancer Now.

Carrying out 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week can help reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. This means being active for 20-25 minutes every day, of which gardening can play a part, can help you to remain fit and reduce your risk of developing the disease.


 

The Bamboo Gloves

These versatile gloves are made of natural breathable fibres to offering a luxuriously soft feel with excellent grip and protection. This unique material is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, so are perfect for gardeners with sensitive skin who often struggle to find the perfect glove. With a latex coating, these gloves offer additional protection against thorns, and the fitted wrists ensure dexterity is maintained when gardening. Available online here in small and medium

 

The Bypass Secateurs 

These bypass secateurs have a pink cushioned, soft-grip handle and built in safety catch, making them extremely easy to use, even when wearing gloves, and are perfect for light duty pruning. The chrome plated carbon steel blades make the tool able to cut branches and stems up to 2cm thick. Available online here

 

The Gardening Pouch 

A contemporary floral design in pink and white, helps to keep secateurs and tools, gloves and gardening accessories close by. With an extendable strap the pouch can be clipped around the waist or hung from the shoulder for ease of use. It has three pockets, one of which is the idea home for the complementing secateurs, and the eyelet in the front pocket allows for twine to make typing plants easier too. Available online here
