I added a splash of pink to my usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which will take place on Friday 19 October to raise money for vital breast cancer research.
I was joined by over 200 other parliamentarians, including Carolyn Harris MP and Deputy Leader of Welsh Labour, in Westminster earlier this month. We are all encouraging people across the UK to take part on wear it pink day and raise money for Breast Cancer Now.
I hope many of my constituents in Ogmore will join me, as well as thousands of others across the UK, to sign up 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.
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 Ogmore to take part in wear it pink day on Friday 19 October.
Wear it pink is great way to come together with friends and family to have fun whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s vital research. As you can see from my photograph, all it takes is an additional splash of pink to your normal outfit!
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 Ogmore, so I hope that everybody will get involved this October and support this very important cause.
