Nick Smith MP Labour MP for Blaenau Gwent
Nick Smith MP has joined the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fundraiser, 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 Breast Cancer Campaign is hoping people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to wear pink in the office, at home or at school.
Donations raised by this year’s fashion inspired event will go to Breast Cancer Campaign to fund lifesaving breast cancer research.
The Blaenau Gwent MP said: “With the In the Pink charity based in Blaenau Gwent raising more than £1m over the past 12 years, Blaenau Gwent has a proud history of backing breast cancer research.
“Despite their successes and the successes of others, we need to keep supporting fundraising efforts for world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments.”
Every year in the UK around 50,000 women and 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Sadly, 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease each year.
wear it pink on Friday 24 October to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s lifesaving research. For more information or to register for wear it pink and receive your fundraising pack visit www.wearitpink.org.
