Selby and Ainsty MP, Nigel Adams is joining forces with the Breast Cancer Campaign to raise awareness of its biggest fundraising event, wear it pink day.
On October 28 he will join other supporters across the country who are encouraged to don an item of pink and donate £2 each to fund breast cancer research.
Mr Adams said: “Every year in the UK, around 48,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and we all know friends and loved ones that have been affected.
“Although it is rare, men can also suffer from breast cancer, with around 340 men diagnosed each year.
“I know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease and I would like to encourage everyone in my constituency and throughout the country to support wear it pink on October 28, to raise valuable funds for breast cancer research.”
