Euro Motors, the exclusive dealer and distributor for luxury automotive manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover in the Kingdom of Bahrain, organized a visit recently to the Bahrain Specialist Hospital, where their staff attended a Breast Cancer medical checkup, showing their support in the fight against Breast Cancer.
The screening process for Breast Cancerwas completely sponsored by Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover as they do not compromise on the welfare of their staff.
Commenting on this initiative, Mr. Simon Ellis, Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover General Manager said: “Breast Cancer is an issue that impacts the world in massive proportions and even with thousands of deaths being attributed to the disease each year, there are many who still do not have sufficient knowledge to tackle it or even to recognize its symptoms. With such a monumental issue at hand, it is our duty to contribute in whatever way we are able to. At Euro Motors, we hold our employees with the highest regard and do not compromise with their health. Thereby, in conjunction with October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover decided to take the initiative of performing mammogramsfor all its employeesto screen for the possibility of Breast Cancer and continuously encourage the spread of awareness on the issue. We have always been vocally strong in advocating all measures to be taken to tackle the disease. We aim to continue this trend with consistent checkups at regular intervals and by promoting the importance of self-examination as well. We refuse to neglect a matter of such critical concern or treat it trivially and will continue to champion this noble cause by extending our ever helping hand for all further activities that promote awareness on the issue.”
Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover has always shown their presence in the fight against Breast Cancer, supporting this cause every year. Last year, Mrs. Jules Sprakel, founder of Think Pink, Bahrain Breast Cancer Society was invited to the Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover showroom where she gave a lecture on Breast Cancer, educating everyone present about all there is to know when it comes to Breast Cancer.An ‘off road’ event as well as a drag event on the track was also held last year at the Bahrain International Circuit supporting this crucial cause and spreading awareness about Breast Cancer.
