3 October 2016

In the pink for breast cancer awareness

Some of Fareham's most recognisable buildings turned themselves pink this weekend in a striking show of support to launch Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Civic Offices, Ferneham Hall and Westbury Manor Museum were all lit pink in the evening on Saturday 1 October. Santander bank, (West Street) also took part.

Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Mrs Connie Hockley, said:  "Having lost two dear friends to the disease, breast cancer awareness is an issue close to my heart. That's why I chose the Breast Cancer Haven in Titchfield as one of my Mayoral charities for the year. I'm delighted therefore that we have supported Breast Cancer Awareness Month in this way, it's a fantastic opportunity to help spread the message."

Marian Parfitt, from Breast Cancer Haven, said: "It was great to see Fareham lighting up its buildings to promote breast cancer awareness. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is all about highlighting the steps we can take to detect the disease early and also remembering the many people whose lives have been affected by it."
