We are excited to reveal Actress and TV presenter Lisa Riley as our wear it pink ambassador for 2016!
Now in its 15th year, wear it pink 2016 is set to be the UK’s biggest and pinkest fundraising event during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On 21 October, thousands of people across the country will be joining Lisa by adding a splash of pink to their outfit to raise money for life-saving breast cancer research.
Lisa chats to us about what wear it pink means to her
“I am so proud to be part of wear it pink 2016. It’s such a fantastic, fun-filled event, which gets friends, family and colleagues together in support of Breast Cancer Now.
I lost my beautiful mum to breast cancer in 2012, and so I know the devastating effect this awful disease can have.
Breast cancer is still the most common cancer in the UK. Every year, wear it pink raises money to fund Breast Cancer Now’s world-class breast cancer researchers in the UK and Ireland. Together, they are working to discover how to prevent breast cancer, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively at every stage to help stop the disease taking lives.
There are so many ways to get involved in wear it pink on 21 October – be it a pink fancy dress day in the office, a pink themed sweepstake, a pink dinner party at home or a pink cake sale at school. So what are you waiting for? Join me and sign up today!”
