HOW YOU CAN HELP PREVENT BREAST CANCER

 

If you’ve spotted that your town has transformed into a sea of pink recently, there’s every chance that Prevent Breast Cancer was behind it. Our Paint Your Town Pink campaign encourages bars, shops, restaurants and all kinds of other businesses in the local area to hold a series of fundraisers to raise money for Prevent Breast Cancer.

 

With last month’s Paint Altrincham Pink event proving to be a roaring success, the campaign is a great example of communities coming together to show their support. If you think your town could do with a splash of pink then let us know, but there’s so many other exciting ways that you can help…

Fundraising

The sky’s the limit when it comes to setting up a fundraiser for Prevent! Get together with friends, family, colleagues and customers to put together an event to raise awareness and much-needed funds. Fundraising is so much fun with the right team and organisation – it might sound like a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be a huge event. From hosting an office bake sale, all the way to walking the Great Wall of China, as long as you are motivated and passionate about helping out our charity then we want to hear all about it!

Coming to our events

Anyone who follows us on social media will know that we’re always holding exciting events with all the proceeds going straight back to the charity. Our fabulous fashion shows are always total sell-outs and our live revival of the ITV classic Stars In Their Eyes has created a media frenzy, so keep your eyes peeled for our next event.

Donations

Every penny will go towards helping us to predict and prevent breast cancer, and your support is vital for us to achieve our goal. You can set up regular donations to contribute whatever you can – even just £2 per month can help us predict which women are most susceptible to breast cancer, and £5 per month can allow us to develop lifestyle and diet studies for high-risk women. You can also send single one-off donations, donate through your payroll, or sponsor one of our fundraisers.

 

Breast cancer affects 55,000 women and men a year and, as the only breast cancer prevention centre in the UK, we’re at the front line in fighting the disease. Want to support Prevent Breast Cancer? Give us a call on 0161 291 4400 or email info@preventbreastcancer.org.uk to get involved!
