Ann Jones, AM for Vale of Clwyd, joined forces with a Breast Cancer Campaign to raise awareness of its award winning fundraising event, ‘wear it pink’, last Friday.
Supporters in schools, colleges, and businesses throughout the country were encouraged to don an item of pink in support of Campaign and each donated £2 to fund innovative world-class breast cancer research.
Last year over one and a half million people took part in wear it pink to help improve survival rates for the one in nine women who experience breast cancer during their lifetime. This recession busting fundraiser is affordable and easy to take part in, giving everyone the chance to help make a difference.
Ann Jones AM said:
“Every year over 2,400 women in Wales are diagnosed with breast cancer and like many others, I know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease. I would like to encourage everyone in the Vale of Clwyd and throughout the country to support breast cancer research, to raise valuable funds for this vital work.”Other news from Vale of Clwyd Labour
