Lynne Featherstone, MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, takes part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s Wear it Pink day
The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green has joined the fight against breast cancer by raising money for research.
Lynne Featherstone has signed up to take part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s biggest fundraiser – the Wear it Pink day.
Over the past 10 years, the event has raised £23 million and on Friday, October 25, schools, colleges and businesses throughout the country will raise money.
The funds will be used to pay for researchers so they have the best possible chance to find the cure for the disease.
The Liberal Democrat MP said she has fought hard to ensure all women in Haringey and North London have access to breast cancer screening but more need to be done.
She said: “Every year in the UK around 50,000 women and around 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.
“Sadly though, 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease.
This is why we need to support the Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts – so they can continue to fund research which will one day lead to a cure."
