Holly Lynch has shown her support for women with breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging her constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraiser, Wear It Pink, on Friday 23rd October.
The Wear It Pink campaign calls on supporters across the country to ditch their day-to-day colours and pull on some pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research.
Holly joined fellow parliamentarians by wearing pink in Westminster this week to encourage people across the UK to get involved. Now in its 14th year, the campaign 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.
Anyone can take part, whether in school, at work or at home. All you have to do is wear something pink and donate whatever you can.
“Every year in the UK around 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and sadly nearly 12,000 women still lose their lives to the disease. This is why we all must come together to support Breast Cancer Now’s cutting-edge research, and, in wear it pink, there is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved.
“I hope everyone in Halifax will join me in wearing it pink on Friday 23 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”
