To help raise money towards this fantastic cause, a range of high street stores are selling carefully selected products throughout this month, with all sales carrying a donation to the charities.

With a signature hue of spirit lifting pink, M&S, Debenhams, Evans, Laura Ashley, Mothercare and Rowenta to name a few, have rallied round to sell great products to enable us to do our bit.
