In the pink to raise funds for Cancer research

Breast Cancer Now – the UK’s largest breast cancer charity – is organising a national “Wear It Pink” day on October 20, to raise funds for vital research into this devastating disease.


Over 50,000 women annually are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. Sadly, more than 11,000 people die from the disease each year.

Breast Cancer Now has raised over £30million for life-saving research since its fundraising event in 2002.

I’m hoping that people across Sunderland will join me and "Wear It Pink" this October in aid of this very deserving cause.
