Wear It Pink!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this Friday is Wear It Pink day in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Campaign. The idea is that you wear something pink and give £2 to the charity. What better way to channel your inner Barbie girl than helping out a fabulous charity?

To give you some background, the Breast Cancer Campaign aims to beat breast cancer by funding innovative world-class research to understand how cancer develops, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and accounts for nearly one in three of all cancers in women. In the UK, around 48,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year. That's an astounding 130 cases a day.

The Breast Cancer Campaign currently funds 95 projects worth almost £16.5 million in 31 locations across the UK and Ireland.

How to get involved

Organising a wear it pink day is fun and easy. Team up with colleagues, family or friends, wear something pink and donate £2 to Breast Cancer Campaign. It’s a simple way to BE PART OF THE CURE and support the thousands of people affected by breast cancer in the UK today

Check out the fab range of Wear It Pink goodies available at Debenhams including the official Wear It Pink T-shirts as modelled by business woman Michelle Mone:

There's a whole assortment of pink items available whose proceeds, full or partial, are going towards supporting the campaign, so keep an eye out for them :)
