LABOUR MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FOR WORSLEY AND ECCLES SOUTH

Barbara Backs Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Barbara is joining forces with Breast Cancer Campaign in its award winning wear it pink day on Friday 26 October 2007 as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and urges you to join in too.

So what do you have to do? It couldn’t be easier. Whether you are in an office, at school, or simply doing the shopping, on 26 October donate £2 to Breast Cancer Campaign and wear an item of pink - anything you like, lots of pink, a little bit of pink, as long as it’s pink. Your donation will allow Campaign to continue researching the cure and help the one woman in nine in the UK that will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

Last year’s wear it pink day raised a whopping £3 million for breast cancer research and helped to fund over forty new research projects in the United Kingdom. This year we want to raise more.

Barbara said:

“Every year nearly 44,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. Like many others, I know people who have lost friends and family members to breast cancer. I would like to encourage everyone in my constituency of Worsley and throughout the country to support wear it pink day on October 26 to help raise valuable funds for breast cancer research.”

Help Breast Cancer Campaign reach its target of £3.5 million and take part in the UK’s original and best pink day. To register and to receive your free fundraising pack either call freephone 0800 107 3104; or visit www.wearitpink.co.uk
