Herstmonceux’s MP is backing wear it pink today (21 October).
Huw Merriman has dressed in pink to show his support to women affected by breast cancer and Breast Cancer Now.
Huw said, “50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK, and sadly around 11,500 women and 80 men will lose their lives to the disease. Together, we must put a stop to this.
“Through cutting-edge research, Breast Cancer Now are tackling the disease from all angles to ensure that, by 2050, everyone that develops the disease will live. But we all need to join forces and act now, and in wear it pink there is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved.
“I’m fully committed to standing up for the women and families affected by the disease in the Bexhill and Battle constituency and I am very proud to take part in wear it pink. I hope everyone in the local community will join me by wearing it pink on Friday 21 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”
