October's Featured Charity

October's Featured Charity 30 September 2015

October 23rd is Wear It Pink day, Breast Cancer Campaign's biggest fundraising event and our chosen charity for this month.

Britain’s biggest, pinkest fundraising day is back for 2015! It’s your chance to have fun and do something incredible for women with breast cancer.When you donate your cartridges & mobiles to our wear it pink day, you join the hundreds of thousands of people who take part in wear it pink, you become part of a collective force of scientists, supporters and people affected by breast cancer. Together, the mission is to beat this disease by funding ground-breaking research.

Breast Cancers Campaign's approach to breast cancer research is pioneering and highly responsive. Breast Cancer Campaign looks for opportunities where the potential for real impact is the highest, then they get the necessary funding straight to where it can make the most difference.

But despite recent advances, breast cancer is still the most common cancer. Every year it claims the lives of 12,000 women, and 50,000 more are diagnosed. It’s crucial that funding continues for this vital research.

Last year, over £2 million was raised by wear it pink supporters, and since 2002 a fantastic £27 million has been donated. This money is already funding world-class research across the UK and Ireland that saves lives.
