Supporting the CANSA foundation is a piece of cake… Literally!


This month, a portion of the money you spend on cakes from Shoprite and Checkers will go towards CANSA and their various programmes.


Supporting the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) this June is a piece of cake, as Shoprite and Checkers will donate a portion of ALL cakes sold in their stores to CANSA.

There are more than 100 000 South Africans diagnosed with cancer every year, and the funds raised will be used to enhance the support programmes offered by CANSA’s Care Centres.

Our CANSA Care Centres offer a wide range of care and support services to those affected by cancer:  stoma support, wigs, prostheses, assistive devices and medical equipment hire, wound care, lymphoedema management and other clinical support, including counselling, support groups and home-based care.

We supply patient care and support in the form of 11 CANSA Care Homes in the main metropolitan areas for out-of-town cancer patients undergoing treatment; a Wellness Centre based in Polokwane; and CANSA-TLC lodging for parents and guardians of children undergoing cancer treatment.

CANSA enables research with regards to lowering cancer risk, educates the public regarding symptoms, offers screening and risk reduction, and provides care and support to all people affected by cancer.

Shoprite and Checkers have a longstanding relationship with the organisation and to date its annual in-store fundraising efforts have raised more than R7 million for the association. The fundraising efforts will be between 1st and 30th June 2018.
