Emma Reynolds, Labour MP for Wolverhampton North East, is adding some pink to her usual attire to show her support for Breast Cancer Now’s ‘wear it pink’ fundraiser.

The event will take place on Friday, October 19, to raise money for vital breast cancer research.

All you need to do is wear something pink, or hold a pink-themed event, and make a donation to Breast Cancer Now.

Every penny raised will help the charity achieve its aim that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and live well.

Emma said: “Each year around 11,500 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease. In Wolverhampton, over 550 women a year will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

“We need to do more to raise awareness about breast cancer and to raise vitally needed money to help fund research into treatments.

“That is why the wear it pink campaign is so important. It is a great way to come together with friends and family to have fun whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s vital research.

“All it takes is find something pink to wear to jazz up your outfit. I hope as many people as possible in Wolverhampton will take part by wearing pink today.”
