MP’s support for Wear it Pink

Hastings MP Amber Rudd has joined the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fundraiser, Wear it Pink Day.

On Friday, October 24 people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to wear pink in the office, at home or at school.

Ms Rudd said: “Every year in the UK more than 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 Hastings and Rye residents as possible to join me and get involved by wearing pink on Friday, October 24.” To register and receive a fundraising pack visit www.wearitpink.org or calling 0800 107 3104.
