Julian wears it pink in support of Breast Cancer Now campaign

October 18, 2023

Julian added a splash of pink to his usual Westminster attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which will take place on Friday 20 October to raise vital funds for world-class breast cancer research and life-changing support. 

Julian was joined by other parliamentarians in Westminster this week, to raise awareness of one of the UK’s biggest and brightest fundraising events. 

Julian is calling for his constituents in York to join him, as well as thousands of others across the UK to sign up and take part in wear it pink which takes place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to date has raised over £39million towards Breast Cancer Now’s important work. 

Anyone can take part in wear it pink, whether at school, work or at home. All you need to do is wear something pink, or hold a pink themed event, and donate to Breast Cancer Now. With every penny raised, fundraisers across the UK will be helping the charity achieve its vision that by 2050 everyone diagnosed with breast cancer lives, and is supported to live well. 

Speaking at the parliamentary reception, Julian said:

“Every 10 minutes, someone in the UK hears the words “you have breast cancer”. It’s the most common cancer in women in the UK. Each year around 11,500 women and 85 men lose their lives to the disease. That’s why I’m so passionate about encouraging everyone in York to take part in wear it pink day on Friday 20 October.   

“Wear it pink is great way to come together with friends and family to have fun whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s world-class research and life-changing support. As you can see from my photograph, all it takes is an additional splash of pink to your normal outfit! 

“I am proud to raise awareness of the impact of the disease locally, and to support and advocate for Breast Cancer Now’s research.”
