Steve Brine wears it pink in Westminster

Steve Brine has once again shown his support for women with breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging his constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now's flagship fundraiser, wear it pink, on Friday 23rd October.

The UK's biggest pink fundraiser, wear it pink calls on supporters across the country to ditch the day-to-day colours and pull on some pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now's life-saving breast cancer research.

Steve joined fellow parliamentarians in wearing it pink in Westminster on Wednesday 9th September to encourage people across the UK to get involved. Now in its 14th year, wear it pink raises over £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer, and this year it is back and bigger, brighter and bolder than ever before.

Anyone can take part, whether in school, at work or at home, and all you have to do is wear something pink and donate whatever you can.

Steve, who was co-chair of the All Party Group on Breast Cancer in the last Parliament before he became PPS to the Health Secretary, remains a parliamentary ambassador for Breast Cancer Now, joining 190 MPs across the country in urging fellow politicians and constituents that immediate action must be taken to stop the disease taking lives.

He said: "Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. Every year in the UK around 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and sadly nearly 12,000 women still lose their lives to the disease. This is why we all must come together to support Breast Cancer Now's cutting-edge research, and, in wear it pink, there is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved.

"As a Breast Cancer Ambassador, I am particularly passionate about standing up for the women and families affected by the disease in Winchester & Chandler's Ford and I am very proud to take part in wear it pink. I hope everyone in the local community will join me in wearing it pink on Friday 23 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now."

Launched in June 2015 with the ambition of ensuring that no one dies from the disease by 2050, Breast Cancer Now is the UK's largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
