Angela Burns urges people to wear it pink for Breast Cancer Now fundraiser

Angela Burns, AM for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire added a dash of pink to her usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s annual wear it pink fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 18 October.

The Breast Cancer Care Charity joined with Breast Cancer Now to form the newly registered charity in April 2019, having previously operated as two separate organisations. The new charity is united around the shared ambition that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and be supported to live well.

Since launching in 2002, Wear it Pink has raised over £33 million. Angela is calling for her constituents to join her, by signing up for wear it pink and helping to make possible life-saving breast cancer research and life changing support for those affected by the disease.

Angela Burns AM, said:

“Each year in Wales, around 2,877 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and over 577 women die of breast cancer.  That’s why I’m encouraging my constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink day on Friday 18 October.  

“The money raised by this wonderful event has such a huge impact, allowing Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research and support for those living with a diagnosis. I hope that everybody will wear it pink this October and support this very important cause. all the money raised will help to fund vital breast cancer research and support.

Wear it pink on 18 October and raise funds for breast cancer research and support. Visit wearitpink.org to register and claim your free fundraising pack.
