Go pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Big Pink, Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This October we’re all about pink – millennial and every other shade going!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you’re invited to hold a Big Pink. It’s a chance to gather friends, family and colleagues for a pink-themed fundraising event for Breast Cancer Care.

More people than ever are surviving breast cancer, but every 10 minutes someone new is diagnosed. By holding a Big Pink you’ll help Breast Cancer Care be there for every one of them, by providing information, care and support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

You could hold a crafternoon, bake off, or a knitathon. Pretty much anything goes – as long as it’s pink-themed! Get your free fundraising pack from Breast Cancer Care, for lots of ideas and materials to help you out. They’ve even got some sweet spotted bunting to jazz up your event.
