pendle MP Andrew Stephenson is backing the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s award winning fund-raiser, Wear It Pink Day – and wants Pendle residents to join him.

Now in its 10th year, Friday, October 26th will see supporters from all over the country in schools, colleges and businesses embracing the event’s new theme, superheroes.

The theme stems from the charity’s belief that everybody who joins the fight – from people affected by breast cancer, to Breast Cancer Campaign scientists and all Wear It Pink participants – is a superhero.

Breast Cancer Campaign is asking everyone to pull on something pink and donate £2, whether it’s a superhero cape, pink socks or pink pants you wear over your tights, you can help the charity achieve its target of raising £2 million, so they can continue to fund ground-breaking research.

Mr Stephenson, who wore a pink tie and the breast cancer charity’s badge for Prime Minister’s Questions in the Commons, said: “Every year in the UK, around 48,000 women and 340 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. This is why we all need to support Wear It Pink Day on October 26th, so that Breast Cancer Campaign can continue to fund research which will one day lead to a cure.”
