October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, one of the most high proﬁle awareness dates in the calendar, and for supporters pink is the only colour to be seen wearing. We’ve gathered together a selection of standout fundraising and fashion styles in a range of pink hues
This year Breast Cancer Care is celebrating 25 years of the iconic pink ribbon, an instantly recognisable symbol for the many people affected by the disease. October always sees a large number of fundraising events aimed at supporting the charity, and this year both Dorothy Perkins and George at Asda are donating money from special charity T-shirts and other items.
The Pink Hope T-shirt from the Tickled Pink line at George at Asda is eye- catching thanks to its pink ribbon motif, and shows how metallic shades can really lift a style. Asda will be donating £1-£2 to Breast Cancer Care from every Tickled Pink product sold this autumn.
Dorothy Perkins, which will be donating 10% of the sale price of its limited edition products online and in-store to Breast Cancer Care, has designed a fashionable T-shirt that adds its pink touch through sequins applied in the shape of the ribbon.
Continuing with the colour theme, we’ve selected three other styles that will help to keep everyone ‘in the pink’ this season. For men, there’s the bright pink Ted Baker polo at Debenhams.
The Tiger Stores pink poncho is perfect for the little ones to wear while cheering on their parents as they run/cycle/swim/sell cakes to raise funds for breast cancer charities in the often distinctly uncharitable British weather.
