Tom Brake MP is joining forces with Breast Cancer Campaign for its award winning fundraising event, wear it pink, on Friday 31 October 2008.

This year's theme is 'dare to wear' and Tom is urging residents, young and old to get their craziest pink outfits on. Tom is pictured wearing a pink lab coat to represent the importance of breast cancer research.

Taking part in wear it pink couldn't be easier. Whether you are in an office, at school, or simply popping to the shops, on 31 October donate £2 and wear an item of pink, the more daring the better! Your donation will allow Campaign to continue funding innovative world class research across the UK.

Tom Brake MP says "Every year over 45,500 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer, with around 770 women diagnosed in South West London. I would like to encourage everyone in Carshalton & Wallington and throughout the country to support wear it pink on October 31, to raise valuable funds for breast cancer research."
