Clwyd South AM Ken Skates has shown his support for women with breast cancer by going pink – and he’s encouraging his constituents to take part a flagship charity fundraiser.
Wear it Pink calls on people across the UK to ditch day-to-day colours and pull on some pink on Friday October 23rd to raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving research.
Mr Skates said: “Every year around 2,600 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Wales, and sadly nearly 600 people still lose their lives to the disease. This is why we all must come together to support Breast Cancer Now’s cutting-edge research.
“Wear it Pink is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved. Anyone can take part, whether in school, at work or at home. All you have to do is wear something pink and donate whatever you can.
“Together, we can make a big difference for women with breast cancer, now and in the future. I hope people in Clwyd South will join me in wearing pink on October 23rd to show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”
Launched in June 2015 with the ambition of ensuring that no-one dies from the disease by 2050, Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
