As the company for women Avon is committed to improving lives and making a real difference both nationally and in the local community. Avon’s army of Representatives, customers and Associates have donated over £22 million to date for Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer charities. It’s thanks to YOU that Avon continues to change lives and support the causes that matter most to women.
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade was first launched in 1992 and since then you have helped us get one step closer to beating breast cancer for good. To celebrate our 25th year of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, we’ve partnered with CoppaFeel!, a breast cancer charity that educates and reminds young women that checking your boobs CAN be fun and CAN save lives.
To help with education and awareness, Avon will partner with CoppaFeel!’s team of Boobettes, who tour the country meeting young women, helping them to understand the importance of regularly checking for early signs of breast cancer. Avon is proud to continue its legacy by supporting CoppaFeel! in their mission to encourage early detection of breast cancer, know what their boobs look and feel like normally and encourage them to check their boobs throughout their lifetime.

Avon works closely with two fantastic charity partners, Refuge and Women’s Aid who both play key roles in supporting women and their children escaping abuse. 1 in 4 women in the UK will be affected by domestic violence at some point in their life. Avon provides funding for life saving services, providing women with the information and support they need to escape abuse.
