I showed my support for women affected by breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging constituents to take part in the UK’s biggest, brightest and pinkest fundraiser, wear it pink, on Friday 21 October.
Wear it pink is back for its 15th year, calling on supporters across the country to add a flash of pink to their wardrobe for the day and raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research.
I joined colleagues from all party’s in wearing it pink in Westminster this week to encourage people across the UK to get involved and help Breast Cancer Now towards their ambition that, by 2050, everyone that develops the disease will live.
Wear it pink raises close to £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer. Anyone can take part, whether at work, at home or at school. All you have to do is wear something pink (a Hearts shirt will do) and donate what you can.
When you join the hundreds of thousands of people who take part in wear it pink, you become part of a collective force of scientists, supporters and people affected by breast cancer, passionate about putting an end to deaths from the disease.
