October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this year, more than ever, your support is needed.

The charity sector has been badly affected by the impact of the coronavirus, with medical research charities been some of the hardest hit. Against Breast Cancer was quick to bring in measures to manage the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on their work and they are committed to continuing to raise vital funds for research into secondary spread cancer.

Here are two easy ways you can get involved and help:

Against Breast Cancer’s recycling team specialise in recycling bras, stamps, toner cartridges and foreign coins. Take 5 minutes to look at the recycling page on their website. Why not sign up for a free bra bank or workplace cartridge box? Or for those working from home, why not have a clear out and donate your unwanted items?

Against Breast Cancer’s recycling team is available to help with any enquiries you may have about any aspects of recycling and can be contacted directly by email on recycling@againstbreastcancer.org.uk.

Or perhaps you fancy The Virtual Breast Walk Ever, running throughout October. The Virtual Breast Walk Ever is a simple way to raise your fitness, your smile and some money, pledging to walk a mile for every donation you receive.

Anyone can take part for free from anywhere! Take on the challenge with your family, friends or colleagues or if you prefer personal challenges then do it yourself, just get walking. This challenge is a great for connecting your teams with a virtual fundraising challenge they can do in their own time and supports the wellbeing of your team by encouraging them to get out and walk to beat breast cancer.

You can also complete the #eyespy list for things you spot on your walk – send the pictures to Against Breast Cancer by the 31st October on social media to be entered into a prize draw and in with the chance of winning some great prizes. Go to the Virtual Breast Walk Ever link and set up a fundraising page and you’re good to go.

Post your photos on social media of you out doing your #virtualbreastwalkever and tag Against Breast Cancer on @againstbc for Facebook or Twitter and @againstbreastcancer1 for Instagram.
