Acqua di Parma’s Dedication to Father & Son Day 2023 in Aid of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

This June, Acqua di Parma will donate 10% of all sales from its Colonia C.L.U.B. fragrance and Colonia C.L.U.B. Father’s Day Set, sold exclusively through John Lewis & Partners, to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in support of Father & Son Day 2023.

Father & Son Day, initiated in 2014 by Daniel Marks and Jack Dyson, who both survived testicular cancer, aims to increase awareness of male cancer and raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The charity’s primary focus is to support the efforts of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, a leading global cancer centre.

The support received from The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity contributes to the financing of cutting-edge equipment, facilities, and innovative research programs, benefiting cancer patients not only at The Royal Marsden but also worldwide. To date, Father & Son Day has raised over £300,000, enabling the funding of specialised robotic surgery fellowships at The Royal Marsden, assisting in the hospital’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and supporting various roles within the patient rehabilitation team, including dieticians and physiotherapists. This funding has made a significant difference in the lives of cancer patients at The Royal Marsden and beyond.

Stephane Euzen, General Manager of Acqua di Parma UK, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Father & Son Day for a third year. Through sales of Colonia C.L.U.B.  at John Lewis & Partners, we will help raise money and awareness for the inspirational work performed by the teams at The Royal Marsden, as well as celebrating the unique bond between a Father & Son”, 

While Daniel Marks, co-founder of Father & Son Day, said:  We are honoured to continue our long-term partnership with Acqua di Parma. Father and Son Day supports vital work at The Royal Marsden and encourages men to talk to each other openly about their health issues. Men don’t spend enough time taking care of themselves. Acqua di Parma not  only take care of our skins, our grooming and our wellbeing – but by supporting us they are helping  with the vital work of supporting our mental and physical health as well”,
