Turn your blog pink to support breastcancer awareness

Breast cancer awareness month

    My home town of Witney turned pink for a day to help raise awareness and funds to help fight a disease that effects so many families every day. It was fantastic to see retailers pulling together and turning their windows pink . This window display at church green cafe in Witney wins my vote for best window and sums up how we all feel about the disease "pants to breast cancer ".



 


Many retailers were donating profits for anything pink purchased and the shake shop had pink specials where  we ordered a titilicious!

 As well as the shops  there were lots of fund raising activities dotted round the town such as biscuit decorating, lucky dip and various stalls.

A fantastic day in the October sunshine supporting a great cause, why not get involved and do something pink this month.

I know what effect cancer can have on peoples lives my husband is lucky to be here today having survived stomach cancer. My best friend has lost both her mother and father to cancer in the last six years. Charities such as against breast cancer are doing fantastic work supporting families and raising funds and rasing awareness for early detection.


To help raise awareness for such a great cause please help by turning your blog pink for October. You could have a pink theme or maybe write about an event your hosting  or how breast cancer has effected your life.



Please take time to have a look at the against breast cancer link below as early detection of the disease is really vital.You can  find  important information on what checks to make.


I have asked five friends  to turn their blogs pink and to pass the baton on to five more friends and to link back here.




Everyone welcome to join in link back here your pink blog post xx
