After 17 years of fundraising we’ve raised a massive £38 million to help fight cancer through our Tickled Pink campaign.
We’d like to say a massive thank you and well done to all our customers and colleagues who have helped us to raise this fantastic amount for Breast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care since Tickled Pink started in 1996. Your support has helped to raise awareness and money for the treatment of breast cancer in the UK.
In 2013 Tickled Pink supported Breast Cancer Care’s HeadStrong service and Breast Cancer Campaign’s Tissue Bank, a Scientific Fellowship and a number of research projects across the UK. The money raised for Tickled Pink has enabled each of these charities to provide a lifeline of support to thousands and fund world class, innovative research.
Thanks to Tickled Pink’s support in 2013, Breast Cancer Care have increased the size of HeadStrong by nearly 50% and have opened eight new centres in local communities – including Aintree, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Lanarkshire and Newcastle.
Breast Cancer Care’s HeadStrong service offers vital one-to-one tailored support and practical information. These expert tips and emotional support give people certainty in their ability to manage hair loss due to cancer treatment.
HeadStrong is now in 28 locations throughout the UK, providing support to thousands more people in their local communities. The service is completely free and available at any stage of their breast cancer diagnosis or treatment. Every £50 raised is enough to fund one HeadStrong session.
