To support the 50,000 people who are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK, Breast Cancer Care is encouraging people nationwide to take part in the charity’s Pink Friday fundraising campaign by wearing pink, eating pink or partying pink at work, home or school.
Money raised will help fund vital services, such as the charity’s helpline, information points in hospitals and face to face services for people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Having a Pink Friday is easy to do and can include anything from wearing pink in the office with pink food and drinks, to a pink pamper party with your mates at home or getting your class to wear pink to school.
Breast Cancer Care supporter Paloma Faith said:
“My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 and had to have a single mastectomy. She’s my best friend and emotional guru rolled into one so you can imagine how devastating it was to hear the word ‘cancer’. This is why it’s so important to me to support Breast Cancer Care’s Pink Fridays campaign. Just dress up in the craziest pink thing imaginable – it doesn’t have to finish with your clothes, turn your desk, your house, even your car pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and help support everyone who’s heard those horrible words: ‘You have breast cancer”
