How To Take Part In Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is when everybody has the opportunity to help increase awareness of breast cancer and raise funds to pay for the research that will eventually find a cure for a disease that must have touched everyone in the country.

There are many ways in which you can be part of this annual worldwide campaign, making a contribution that will significantly raise the chances of beating breast cancer in the near future.

Free Fundraising Kit

To get inspiration, sign up to receive a free fundraising kit. This will give you lots of ideas of how you can help wherever you are, in the home, at work or in school.

Although events are taking place throughout the month, with people organising or taking part in sponsored cycle rides, bakes, running or similar activities, the big day is Friday 21 October.

This is 'Wear It Pink' day. Classrooms and work places will be decorated in pink, children and colleagues will dress in pink, and everyone can make something to sell or organise a sponsored event that will no doubt be based on a pink theme.

Iconic buildings will be illuninated in pink and pink parties will take place all over the nation, where everyone dresses in pink, eats pink cakes, drinks pink champagne and has a thoroughly enjoyable time while raising vital funds.

Time To Live Rose

GardenSite has a long association with Breast Cancer Now who's aim is to achieve a 100% survival rate in the next thirty years.

Our relationship culminated in the launch of the 'Time To Live Rose', a superbly scented pink that flowers freely, comes ready to plant and can be ordered online. We donate a £1 of each sale to Breast Cancer Now.

This is not the only product that can be purchased with a proportion of each sale being donated to breast cancer charities.

There are many items from tea and slippers to lingerie, that can be bought during October to help raise a projected £2million in addition to nearly £30million that has already been donated.

If you want to find out more information and take an active part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month go to the Breast Cancer Now website.
