PHILIPSBURG, Pond Island – TelEm Group's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign for the month of October has turned out to be a huge success for the company with hundreds of information leaflets distributed – and many promotional Blackberry Smartphones sold.

The company's mobile provider, TelCell, has been offering special prices on Blackberry handsets to the first 50 women to visit the main branch in Phillipsburg each Wednesday.

At the same time the women receive breast cancer awareness information in collaboration with the Positive Foundation's month-long breast awareness campaign.

TelEm Group Marketing Officer, Marelva Felix Jones says the promotion has gone beyond all expectations with some women lining up outside the TelEm Group main building from as early as 5:30 in the morning to make good on the special promotion offers.

"We are very pleased with this type of public response which brings attention to a very important health matter in our community," said Ms. Felix-Jones.

In fact the promotion has been so successful for women, that male customers are requesting a health awareness day for themselves also.

Consideration is being given to a follow-up promotion, but in the meantime the company is gearing up for the final wave of customers seeking special deals on Blackberry handsets next Wednesday.

Customers who wish to know more about breast cancer awareness are encouraged to ask any TelEm Group customer service representative for an available brochure or for further contact information.
