Icelandic Glacial joined the fight against cancer this month as it turned out in force to support Cancer Research UK as an official sponsor & water supplier to the flagship fundraising events; The Pink Ice Ball & Halloween Ball.

This year’s Pink Ice Ball, hosted at the Dorchester Hotel, received huge attention as Kylie Minogue planned to make her first public appearance since being diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. Sadly, Kylie was unable to attend on the advice of her doctors, but Sister Danni was at the event and read out a short message from the star, in which she sent her “solidarity” to fellow cancer sufferers.

The event was exquisitely themed and Icelandic Glacial complimented the setting with their illuminated pink ice cubes - showing off the award winning bottle design to great effect. Each guest was also treated to a complimentary bottle of Icelandic Glacial in their luxury goody bags.
