Pink Pots Fund Breast Cancer Survival

Mitchell and Rachel chose the National Breast Cancer Foundation because of family members that have suffered from this terrible disease.

WHEN we think of local business our minds often turn to hospitality, tourism and aged care.

However, Port Stephens and the Tomaree Peninsula also have a range of manufacturing businesses that are doing amazing things in our community.

Based in George Road at Salamander Bay, there is an injection moulding business which is supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) by manufacturing some very interesting planters.

Rachel Jameson of Deeps Engineering told News Of The Area, “Last year we came up with the idea of making our Stack n Pots in a limited edition colour to raise funds for a great cause.

“We chose the NBCF because we have family who have had or currently have breast cancer so it became a bit of a personal choice when deciding which foundation to support.”

The National Breast Cancer Foundation states that 20,000 people will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Australia this year.

That equates to 57 Australians facing a terrible diagnosis every single day.

One in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and approximately nine Australians are dying each day from the disease.

Deeps Engineering’s pink pots raised just over $500 last year and with a nationwide shipping program they hope to achieve even more in 2022.

The pots are made from polypropylene and are recyclable.

The pots are suitable for vegetables, herbs and strawberries if you are interested in growing an edible garden, otherwise they do just as well for flowers, cacti and succulents.

The stackable pots are also UV Stabilised for added protection against sun damage.

The NBCF fundraiser pots can be ordered for pre-order at the Deeps Engineering website.

Sets with four tiers, a tray and chain are only $15 with $5 from each pink set going towards the NBCF.

Since the NBCF started funding in 1994, the five-year survival rates for breast cancer have improved from 76 percent to 92 percent.
