Spurs Support For AIA Thailand’s ‘Sharing a Life’ Initiative

Mon 25th Apr 2016 | Marketing & PR

Title chasing Tottenham Hotspur will wear special edition match shirts supporting AIA Thailand’s ‘Sharing a Life’ initiative during tonight's (Monday) Premier League game with West Bromwich Albion.

The north London club will replace its usual AIA logo on the front of the team’s shirts to promote an initiative aimed at promoting improved health and quality of life for thousands across disadvantaged communities in Thailand.

Match-worn shirts will be signed by the players and auctioned off to raise funds for one of the ‘Sharing a Life’ beneficiary charities, Kanchanabaramee Foundation.

The Foundation aims to educate up to 70,000 people across Thailand in self-examination for breast cancer, as well as funding the best mobile mammography unit in South-East Asia that will save 6,000 at-risk lives per year.

As part of AIA’s commitment to Tottenham Hotspur, a percentage of funds raised through the shirt auction will go to Spurs Wishes, a charitable body established by the club to provide memorable and uplifting experiences to terminally ill fans and their families.

Donna-Maria Cullen, Executive Director, Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are delighted to show our support for AIA Thailand’s ‘Sharing a Life’ initiative and to help raise vital funds for Kanchanabaramee Foundation.

“As a football club with a truly global platform, we are well-placed to raise awareness of good causes on an international level, using the power of football to create life-changing opportunities for people in disadvantaged communities, both at home and abroad.

“Our long-term partnership with AIA sees us work together to promote health and wellbeing across the Asia-Pacific region, where we have a significant fanbase.”

Sang Hui Lee, AIA Thailand CMO, added: “AIA’s ultimate goal is to help people live longer, better and healthier. 

“AIA Sharing a Life is not just a donation: participation from all parties who are determined to make a better place is the key to success.

“Since cancer is the leading cause of death in Thailand, we are proud to work in partnership with Kanchanabaramee Foundation to help breast cancer patients and provide screenings for underprivileged people that are most vulnerable to breast cancer.”

Dr. Somyos Deerasamee M.D., Ph.D. from Kanchanabaramee Foundation, said: “Our mission is to provide preventive care services to areas where people have difficulty accessing healthcare. Based on research and studies, breast cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage is more likely to be treated successfully.

“Through the mobile breast cancer screening unit, we have a volunteering team to guide people on how to check for lumps or other breast changes that may signal breast cancer. The screening unit also enables us to travel to local and remote locations offering high-risk people an opportunity to have a mammogram.

“With this activity, together we save lives and deliver life-changing support to people that need it the most.”
