EVESHAM’s MP Sir Peter Luff will wear something pink and lend his support to the fight against breast cancer.

The Mid Worcestershire MP has pledged to don a pink item of clothing and back the Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fund-raiser ‘Wear it Pink’ day on October 24.

The theme of wear it pink this year is to ‘look good, do good’ in support of breast cancer research. It’s hoped people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to wear pink in the office, at home or at school.

Donations raised by this year’s fashion inspired event will go to Breast Cancer Campaign to fund lifesaving breast cancer research.

Sir Peter said: “Every year in the UK more than 50,000 women and around 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.

“Sadly, 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease each year.

“This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fund-raising efforts to support world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments.

“I hope you’ll all join me by wearing it pink on Friday 24 October and showing your support for breast cancer research.” he added.
