BREAST Cancer Now's wear it pink day is one of the biggest fundraising events in the UK.

Taking place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, thousands of amazing people wear it pink in their communities, schools or workplaces for the UK's largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now.

This is the 20th year that we'll all be wearing it pink, with more than £36 million raised since 2002.

A spokesperson for the charity says: "Together, we can go even further and raise even more money for the people affected by this disease.

"Since March 2020, the doors to hundreds of our community support events have had to close and our researchers were kept out of their labs for 100 days or more.

"That's why we've only become more determined to make sure we're there to support people when they need us And more determined to make the breakthroughs in research that will continue to drive forward progress.

"People affected by breast cancer need us - and they need you too. That's why we need you to wear pink, raise money, and hep make life-changing research and care happen."


GETTING involved is easy. Just sign up and then start planning what you're going to do on the day.

The charity will send a fundraising pack in the post, that has everything you need for your wear it pink event.
