Politics goes pink for breast cancer awareness

Mark Tami MP for Alyn & Deeside, has shown his support for women with breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging his constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraiser, Wear it pink, on Friday 23rd October.

Wear it pink, the UK’s biggest pink fundraiser, calls on supporters across the country to ditch the day-to-day colours and pull on some pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research.

Mark Tami MP joined fellow parliamentarians in wearing it pink in Westminster this week to encourage people across the UK to get involved.

Mark Tami MP said:

“Wear it Pink is a fun way for everyone to get involved and support research by Breast Cancer Now. Sadly 50,000 women are diagnosed with this disease every year and nearly 12,000 women lose their lives to this disease.

“Anyone can take part by wearing it pink on Friday 23rd October all you have to do is wear pink and donate whatever you can.”

Now in its 14th year, wear it pink raises over £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer, and this year it is back and bigger, brighter and bolder than ever before.

Launched in June 2015 with the ambition of ensuring that no one dies from the disease by 2050, Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

This is a day when we stand out, stand together and stand for something: wear it pink on Friday 23 October to support Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving research. For more information or to register for wear it pink visit www.wearitpink.org.
