For the third year running, we are lighting Wessex up in pink this October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Not only do we have iconic buildings lighting up pink - Spinnaker Tower, Mayflower Theatre, Southampton Guildhall to name but a few, but we are hoping to have 31 days of activities happening across the region. What better way to spread the word about how we are helping people here at Breast Cancer Haven Wessex, ensuring that we reach those that need our help.

We need YOUR help! Can your work building light up pink? Can you hang pink bunting from your window's, can you organise a fundraising event at your work or with friends? Can you encourage them to take part in Pink Shirt Day? Would you like to take part in a challenge event? Anything goes!

Last year, a wonderful lady in Portsmouth was sponsored to layer herself in as many pink things as possible, including face paint and pink hair! Her last count was 126 items! There was also a painting activity at a stables in Winchester where some horses were painted in pink.

We will be repeating our 'pink pumpkin competition' this year as it was such great fun and a way to get the whole family involved!

If you would like to get involved, please contact us at [email protected]cancerhaven.org.uk or 01329 559290

Any funds and awareness that you raise will go to supporting local people in Dorset, Hampshire, South Wiltshire, West Sussex, Isle of Wight and The Channel Islands.
