Rye MP Amber Rudd has joined the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fund raiser, Wear It Pink Day.
The theme of Wear It Pink this year is to ‘look good, do good’ in support of breast cancer research.
On Friday 24 October people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to wear pink in the office, at home or at school.
Amber commented: “Every year in the UK over 50,000 women and around 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.
“Sadly, 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease each year. This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts to support world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments. I would urge as many Rye area residents as possible to join me and get involved by wearing pink on Friday 24 October.”
Donations raised by this year’s fashion inspired event will go to Breast Cancer Campaign to fund life saving breast cancer research.
People can register for wear it pink, and receive a fund raising pack by visiting www.wearitpink.org or calling 0800 107 3104.
