October 30, 2013 12:26 PM

Local MP Tom Brake swapped yellow for pink last week, when he took part in Breast Cancer Campaign's biggest (and pinkest) fundraiser, 'wear it pink' day.

Armed with pink glasses and a pink rosette, the MP for Carshalton and Wallington joined the fight against breast cancer and showed his support for the Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"Every year in the UK around 50,000 women and around 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Sadly, most of us know someone who has been affected by this disease."

"This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign, not only during the awareness month, but all year round."

Breast Cancer Campaign vitally needs the money for its researchers to have the best possible chance to find the cure.

Tom Brake backed the Breast Cancer Awareness Month showing his support for the 'Wear it Pink' day.Over the last 10 years 'wear it pink' has raised a staggering £23 million and on Friday 25 October 2013 people came together in schools, colleges and businesses throughout the country to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Campaign's lifesaving research.

Tom added:

"I would encourage everyone to donate to Breast Cancer Campaign, however small the amount, and help them fund research which will one day lead to a cure. It's really as simple as that."
