Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, added a dash of pink to his usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 18 October.
Since launching in 2002, wear it pink has raised over £33 million. Nick is calling for his constituents to join him, by signing up for wear it pink and helping to make possible life-saving breast cancer research and life changing support for those affected by the disease.
Speaking today Nick said:
“Each year in Wales, around 2,877 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and over 577 women die of the disease. That’s why I’m encouraging my constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink day on Friday 18 October.
“The money raised by this wonderful event has such a huge impact, allowing Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research and support for those living with a diagnosis. I hope that everybody will wear it pink this October and support this very important cause.”
Wear it pink on 18 October and raise funds for breast cancer research and support. Visit wearitpink.org to register and claim your free fundraising pack.
