Fashion Targets Breast Cancer for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity is back for 2013, and a whole host of high street stores are involved – and you’ll find some of them in Ocean Terminal.
Sharon Osbourne – who herself battled colon cancer, and in in 2012 underwent a preventative double mastectomy after discovering she carried the BRCA gene which increases the risk of developing breast cancer by up to 85%, fronts the poster campaign with her daughter, Kelly.
“Every year Fashion Targets Breast Cancer unites people for this vitally important cause, a cause that is particularly close to my heart,” says Sharon. “On discovering I carried the BRCA gene having a double mastectomy just made sense to me – I want to ensure I’m there for my family for the future. I hope that everyone in the UK really embraces the campaign this year. I know only too well the importance of the research this campaign funds – it’s vital that their scientists can keep making breakthroughs to improve the lives of women affected by the disease. So everyone please join in and wear your support!”
Retailers Marks & Spencer, River Island, Warehouse, Topshop, my-wardrobe.com, Coast, Laura Ashley and Debenhams have all designed exclusive products for the campaign.Each carries a donation, some have a 100% donation – and there are items for every price point, from £2 up to £275.
