Wear it Pink

10th September 2018

St Albans MP Anne Main is supporting Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which will take place on Friday 19 October to raise money for vital breast cancer research. Anne was joined by over 200 other parliamentarians in Westminster last week, all encouraging people across the UK to take part on wear it pink day and raise money for Breast Cancer Now.

Anyone can take part in wear it pink, whether at work, school or in your community. All you need to do is wear something pink, or hold a pink themed event, and donate to Breast Cancer Now. Fundraisers across the UK will be helping the charity achieve its aim that, if we all act now, by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and live well.

Mrs Main said, ‘Breast cancer is still the most common form of cancer in the UK. Each year around 11,500 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease. That’s why I’m so passionate about encouraging everyone in St Albans to take part in wear it pink day on Friday 19 October. Wear it pink is great way to come together with friends and family to have fun whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s vital research. As a Breast Cancer Now Ambassador I am proud to raise awareness of the impact of the disease locally, and to support and advocate for Breast Cancer Now’s research. Breast cancer affects so many people in St Albans so I hope that everybody will get involved this October and support this very important cause.’
