I was delighted to support Breast Cancer Now's wear it pink fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 18 October.
Every year in the UK, around 55,000 women and around 350 men are given the devastating news that they have breast cancer, which is why I want to encourage my constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now's wear it pink day.
Anyone can take part in wear it pink. You could hold a cake sale, organise a raffle or arrange a pink fancy dress day! No matter how people choose to wear it pink, all the money raised will help to fund vital breast cancer research and support.
Since launching in 2002, wear it pink has raised over £33 million to date!
The money raised by this wonderful cause has such a huge impact, allowing Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research and support for those living with a diagnosis. I hope that everybody will wear it pink this October and support this very important cause.
