Supporting 'Wear it pink' day
26/10/2010 08:13:00


I have joined forces with Malcolm Wicks, the Labour MP for Croydon North, to raise awareness of Breast Cancer Campaign's award-winning fundraising event, 'Wear it pink' day.

On Friday, supporters in schools, colleges and businesses throughout the country are encouraged to don an item of pink in support of the campaign and each donate £2 to fund innovative world-class breast cancer research.

Last year, over one million people took part in 'Wear it pink' to help improve survival rates for the one in nine women who experience breast cancer during their lifetime.

Every year in the UK, nearly 46,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed, making it the most common form of cancer. The vast majority of those cases are women although around 300 men are diagnosed each year. Malcolm and I both know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease and we would like to encourage everyone in Croydon to support 'Wear it pink' on Friday.

To take part, call 0800 107 3104 or click here and register to receive your free fundraising pack.
