Jo Swinson supporting the wear it pink campaign
Donning a pink outfit ahead of ‘wear it pink’ day on Friday 28th October, Jo encouraged local schools, colleges and businesses to wear something pink and donate £2 to the Breast Cancer Campaign.
Funds raised will go towards world-class breast cancer research and support 105 projects across the UK and Ireland, including the UK’s first ever national breast cancer tissue bank.
To take part visit www.wearitpink.co.uk and register to receive a fundraising pack.
Commenting, Jo said:
“This fun and popular campaign is a brilliant way of raising funds for a vital cause. With 48,000 people in the UK diagnosed with breast cancer ever year, your £2 donation could help fund life-saving research.
“I very much enjoyed getting a pink outfit on to support the Breast Cancer Campaign, and I hope as many East Dunbartonshire residents as possible will do the same.”
