MPs Nick de Bois and David Burrowes wear it pink to support Breast Cancer Campaign
Two Enfield MPs have got in the spirit of wear it pink day by donning rather unusual outfits.
Conservative politicians David Burrowes and Nick de Bois are urging people to get involved in tomorrow’s annual event to raise money for the Breast Cancer Campaign.
The charity is asking people all over the country to donate £2 to wear something pink with a superhero theme – whether it’s a pink superhero cape, pink socks or pink pants worn over tights.
The pink day is in its tenth year and the new theme marks the charity’s belief that everyone affected by cancer is a superhero.
Nick de Bois MP said: “There aren't many causes that I will wear a pink baseball cap, sash and rosette for, but this is definitely one of them.
“I'm more than happy to help raise awareness because breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, so hopefully people will donate £2 and we can make a difference.”
Every year in the UK, 48,000 women and 340 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.
Mr Burrowes urged people to support wear it pink day to help pay for research which will one day lead to a cure.
