Cambridge will be turning a bright shade of pink this September as Cancer Research UK stages its Paint Cambridge Pink event from the 17th to the 19th.
Launching the charity's 'Join the Fight' campaign in Cambridge, Cancer Research UK is calling on men, women and children across the city to get involved and support families affected by breast cancer across the UK.
The charity will be hosting a series of fundraising events across Cambridge from the 17th through to the 19th September is looking for local people, families and businesses to get involved.
Laura Holland, area volunteer manager for Cambridge, commented: “We need everyone in Cambridge to ‘Join the fight for women’s survival’."
Our research is beating breast cancer. We need you to help us fight harder. One in nine women will develop breast cancer at some point and the charity needs people to help fund its crucual work into all aspects of the disease."
To make the Paint Cambridge Pink weekend a success, Cancer Research UK is looking for volunteers to help with events in the city centre on all three days.
Events will be taking place in the Grand Arcade, The Grafton centre and Lion Yard as well as in the streets, where the “Pink Bus” donated by Stagecoach will be hosting other activities.
An army of celebrities has already been assembled for the ‘Join the fight for women’s survival’ national campaign. They include Hollywood stars, Nicole Kidman and Minnie Driver, EastEnders’ Barbara Windsor, designer Tracey Boyd, actresses Honor Blackman, Fay Ripley and Roxanne Pallett, as well as singers Sonique and Anne Nolan.
