WE ARE halfway through October, so already people across the country have been doing their bit for Breast Cancer Awareness month, with this year’s theme being Paint it Pink.
This week, Gazette Style is thinking pink by showcasing some of our favourite pink pieces to help get everyone in the spirit of getting something pink this month.
A number of retailers are doing their bit, including Debenhams, which will donate 25% of the selling price to breast cancer research and care when people buy from its Think Pink range, from statement pink bags to luxurious lingerie sets. They will also donate 50c from every bra sold.
Meanwhile, The Zip Yard – Ireland’s leading clothing and alterations boutique – donated 50% of turnover in each of its 24 shops throughout the country on Friday, October 10.
Throughout the month of October, they are raising funds through pink bake sales, pink coffee mornings, pink sponsored walks and runs as well as offering wardrobe makeovers to breast cancer survivors.
