Today (21/10/16), Dr Julia Reid MEP’s Office Team took part in the UK’s biggest, brightest and pinkest fundraiser, wear it pink. Every year, wear it pink raises around £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now. Today marked the 15th year since the original fund-raising campaign began.
Julia and her team, who are based in Chippenham, donned pink outfits and took part in fundraising activities throughout the day including a tea and pink cake sale.
Dr Julia Reid MEP said: “Taking part in wear it pink is an excellent way to have a bit of fun together as a team, whilst supporting a really important cause and raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s lifesaving research. This year our wear it pink fund-raiser was incredibly well received and I’m pleased to announce the team raised a total of £93!”
