Can you tell us a bit more about Fashion Targets Breast Cancer 2019?
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer is back for 2019 with a campaign called ‘Fashion Strong’. It is all about women coming together, through fashion, to stop breast cancer. Once again, some of UK’s top high-street retailers are on board and have created a fabulous product collection, which is raising money to support Breast Cancer Now.
You’ve been a supporter of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer for a number of years, why is it so important to you?
I’m thrilled to be supporting Fashion Targets Breast Cancer again. It is so inspiring to be a part of as it involves so many passionate people who all share a common goal; raising money to fund vital research into breast cancer.
I’ve experienced first-hand the devastating impact breast cancer can have. Thankfully, my mother came through it, but sadly breast cancer still takes the lives of around 11,500 women every year in the UK. The money raised by Fashion Targets Breast Cancer helps to fund Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research and so I am delighted to be doing what I can to support this important cause.
What do you hope will be achieved by Fashion Targets Breast Cancer in 2019?
I hope we can raise as much money as possible to support vital breast cancer research. The Fashion Targets Breast Cancer product collection launches in stores and online on Tuesday 18thApril. Buying and wearing a piece from the collection means you’ll be part of a force of incredible women who want to stop breast cancer taking the lives of those we love, because 30% of each sale goes straight to Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research.
