Bexley MPs pretty in pink to raise awareness of breast cancer
TWO of Bexley’s MPs have been snapped looking pretty in pink to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Erith and Thamesmead MP Teresa Pearce sported a fetching feather boa and sunglasses combination to publicise the Breast Cancer Campaign’s ‘wear it pink’ day next month.
David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, stuck with a rosette and sign to show his support during the event in Parliament.
Similar campaigns in the last 10 years have raised £23 million for lifesaving and supporters are hoping to significantly add to that figure thanks to this year’s event on October 25.
Teresa Pearce said: "Most people’s lives have been touched in some way by cancer.
"I would urge constituents to join me, wear something pink and donate £2."
Mr Evennett added: "Sadly 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease every year in the UK.
"This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts so they can continue to fund research which I hope will one day lead to a cure."
