Ahead of this year’s wear it pink day on the 21st October, Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones recently joined other Assembly Members at the Senedd and dressed up in a range of ‘pink ‘ accessories to support the wear it pink event, Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraising event.
Breast Cancer Now is committed to funding research into breast cancer and is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity. The wear it pink event takes place during Breast Cancer Awareness month and people are encouraged to don something pink and donate what they can. Wear it pink is now in its 15th year and is aiming to encourage as many of us as possible to wear something pink to make this year’s wear it pink the UK’s biggest, brightest and pinkest fundraiser.
Last year, the wear it pink event raised over £2million for ground breaking research and since the very first wear it pink event in 2002, over £27 million has been raised.
Carwyn Jones AM said “Wear it pink is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved and I am very proud to take part in wear it pink and show my support for those affected by breast cancer. I would encourage people to don their favourite pink items on the 21st October and support this worthwhile event to stand together against breast cancer”.
