The staff at NCC dug deep into the depths of their wardrobe to find their pinkest item of clothing for charity. Wear it pink has been a annual event for the past three years at NCC and some of the efforts this year were fantastic. We managed to raise £70, which will help the ongoing fight against breast cancer.
When you join the hundreds of thousands of people who take part in wear it pink, you become part of a collective force of scientists, supporters and people affected by breast cancer. Together, the aim is to beat this disease by funding ground-breaking research.
Our approach to breast cancer research is pioneering and highly responsive. Breast Cancer Campaign looks for opportunities where the potential for real impact is the highest. Then we get the necessary funding straight to where it can make the most difference.
But despite recent advances, breast cancer is still the most common cancer. Every year it claims the lives of 12,000 women, and 50,000 more are diagnosed. It’s crucial that we keep funding this vital research.
Last year, £2.1 million was raised by our wear it pink supporters and this money is already funding world-class research across the UK and Ireland that saves lives.
