Wear it pink for char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

RES­I­DENTS are urged to wear pink as part of a na­tion­wide fundraiser in aid of breast cancer re­search.

The Wear It Pink 2017 event takes place on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20, and par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to wear pink and make a do­na­tion to the cause.

Mac­cles­field MP David Rut­ley has joined the cam­paign. He said: “Breast cancer is the most com­mon cancer in the UK. One in eight women will face it in their life­time, and ev­ery year over 11,000 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease.

“I would en­cour­age Mac­cles­field res­i­dents, busi­nesses and schools to take part in the im­por­tant Wear It Pink ini­tia­tive on Fri­day 20 Oc­to­ber. It’s an easy and fun way for peo­ple to come to­gether to sup­port those af­fected by breast cancer and sup­port vi­tal re­search.”
