I added a dash of pink to my usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s ‘wear it pink’ fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 18 October.
Since launching in 2002, wear it pink has raised over £33 million to date. I am calling for my constituents to join me, by signing up for wear it pink and helping to make possible life-saving breast cancer research and life changing support for those affected by the disease.
Joining me on the day were four Breast Cancer Now supporters who have been affected by breast cancer.
Anyone can take part in wear it pink. Some people will choose to hold a cake sale, while others will opt to organise a raffle and some will arrange a pink fancy dress day at their school or workplace. No matter how people chose to wear it pink, all the money raised will help to fund vital breast cancer research and support.
In April 2019, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now merged to create the UK’s first comprehensive breast cancer charity, united around the shared ambition that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and be supported to live well. Every wear it pink donation will help towards this goal.
Wear it pink on 18 October and raise funds for breast cancer research and support. Visit wearitpink.org/mp to register and claim your free fundraising pack.
