Raising money for breast cancer
Today is the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and from here on in, loads of high street retailers, charities and campaigners will be raising awareness and funds to help those 46,000 women and 300 men who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
From Marks & Spencer to Mothercare, retailers have launched a range of fab products clad in the trademark pink to raise money. Breast Cancer Care, Cancer Research UK, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Campaign, to name a few, are all joining together this October – and you can do your bit, too.
