Alan Campbell, MP for Tynemouth added a dash of pink to his usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 18 October.
Since launching in 2002, wear it pink has raised over £33 million to date. Alan Campbell MP is calling for their constituents to join him, by signing up for wear it pink and helping to make possible life-saving breast cancer research and life changing support for those affected by the disease.
Alan Campbell said “Every year in the UK, around 55,000 women and around 350 men are given the devastating news that they have breast cancer. That’s why I’m encouraging my constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink day on Friday 18 October.
“The money raised by this wonderful event has such a huge impact, allowing Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research and support for those living with a diagnosis. I hope that everybody will wear it pink this October and support this very important cause.”
