Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, added a splash of pink to his usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which will take place on Friday 19th October to raise money for vital breast cancer research.
Justin is hoping local people will join him and take part in wear it pink, which takes place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to date has raised over £31 million towards Breast Cancer Now’s important work.
“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. With every penny raised, 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.
“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 Ellesmere Port and Neston to take part in wear it pink day on Friday 19th October.
“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 our community so I hope that everybody will get involved this October and support this very important cause.”
