Two Bexley MPs have backed the Wear It Pink campaign in the fight against breast cancer.

On October 25 thousands of people across the country will join forces to fundraise - and Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett, along with his Erith and Thamesmead counterpart Teresa Pearce, are on board.

In the last 10 years the Breast Cancer Campaign has raised more than £10million for the cause.

Ms Pearce said: “Most people’s lives have been touched in some way by cancer. Every year in the UK around 50,000 women and around 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer, which is a huge amount. Sadly, 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease each year.

“This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts so they can continue to fund research which will one day lead to a cure. I would therefore urge constituents join me, wear something pink and donate £2, it’s really as simple as that.”
