Tickled Pink

The University of Leeds turns pink!

The Parkinson Building at the University of Leeds has been lit up pink for Breast Cancer Campaign’s research – as we come to the end of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Parkinson Building

The Parkinson Building was one of the 18 landmarks across the UK to turn pink – to remind the nation to support research into breast cancer.

The University of Leeds is one of four sites across the country that house Breast Cancer Campaign’s pioneering Tissue Bank. The Bank, which is the first of its kind in the UK, is a unique national resource for researchers in the UK and Ireland to collect and store tissue samples, safely and consistently. The Tissue Bank was made possible thanks to our Tickled Pink campaign.

Lisa Burnett, Asda’s Charity Partnership Manager, said: “This pioneering Tissue Bank in Leeds is only possible because of the continued support we receive for Asda’s Tickled Pink campaign from customers and colleagues. We would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication over the past 17 years. We hope this will play a significant role in helping the thousands of people who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.”
