This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and thanks to the High Street backing the campaign there are plenty of ways for you to show your support and donate to the cause!
Office has released three special edition pairs of shoes all in a shade of pink, with fifty per cent of profits going to Breast Cancer Care. There’s a style to suit everyone with a classic flat, strappy mid-heel or a pointy stiletto. Henry Holland has also given a fashion touch to the campaign. As part of Debenhams’ Think Pink range, Holland has designed a pink lips bag for his H! By Henry Holland collection, seeing donations made to three different breast cancer charities. River Island has joined in too with a slogan t-shirt. Available in store or online, a thirty per cent contribution is made to Breakthrough Breast Cancer. It’s only week 3, but if you’re already struggling with your student loan, there are cheaper ways to join the effort. This year Asda has set up their own breast cancer charity, Tickled Pink, and offer a multitude of products that can be purchased to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And if you really just want to show your support, Smint’s new strawberry flavoured mints are a fruity and refreshing treat and also donate to the cause.
Every year nearly 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, the equivalent of one person every ten minutes. Show your support and combine a shopping trip with a charitable donation!
