For the first time, many of Britain’s most iconic landmarks are turning pink to support the Breast Cancer Campaign for ‘wear it pink’ month. A total of 18 landmarks in 12 major towns and cities including Glasgow, Cardiff, Belfast, Newcastle, Gateshead, Windsor, Bristol, Leeds, Coventry, Bath, Birmingham and of course London have taken part in the initiative.
Famous London landmarks to turn pink include, were the Cutty Sark, National Theatre, Waterloo Bridge, the Marble Arch Fountains and even the Vauxhall Cross SIS Building. Every year, the Breast Cancer Campaign charity raises over £2 million very year by asking everyone to wear something pink and donate £2 for ‘pinktober.’ The money raised helps fund life-saving research into breast cancer at institutions across the UK.
Cheif Executive of Breast Cancer Campaign, Baroness Delyth Morgan said, ‘We’re thrilled that the Secret Intelligence Service building and other well-known landmarks are joining us in highlighting the importance of breast cancer research. We hope this will raise awareness of breast cancer and encourage people to take action themselves by taking part in wear it pink.’
