Local MP dares to ‘Wear it Pink’

Rt Hon Dr Gavin Strang MP is joining forces with Breast Cancer Campaign for its award winning fundraising event, wear it pink, on Friday 31 October 2008.

This year’s theme is ‘dare to wear’ and Gavin is urging residents, young and old to get their craziest pink outfits on, whether it be a pink lab coat, pink glasses or just a pink tie. Gavin is pictured wearing a pink lab coat to represent the importance of breast cancer research.

Taking part in wear it pink couldn’t be easier. Whether you are in an office, at school, or simply popping to the shops, on 31 October donate £2 and wear an item of pink, the more daring the better! Your donation will allow Campaign to continue funding innovative world class research across the UK.

The Rt Hon Dr Gavin Strang MP says “Every year over 45,500 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. I would like to encourage everyone to support wear it pink on October 31, to raise valuable funds for breast cancer research.”
