October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. To help support the important work of Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Care, your Officer team will be inspiring students to take part in raising awareness of this ever-important cause through activities, events and easy ways to donate.


CAMPAIGN UPDATE: From our Pink Drinks menu to wearing your best pink attire at Score, together we have raised £450 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Find out about the two great charities #BCAM will help below. 




Get involved



On Wednesdays we wear pink 

Be the envy of Regina George and her Mean Girls by joining us in wearing pink every Wednesday in October. Pink is the internationally recognised colour of many breast cause awareness campaigns; help us keep this important cause the topic of conversation by getting creative with your attire.




Pink Drinks

Drinks taste better when you know you’re helping towards ending breast cancer for good. For the whole of Breast Cancer Awareness month, up to 50p from every purchased Pink Drink bought at the Students' Union will go directly to our two charities, Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Care. Just ask at the SU bar for a full list of 'Pink Drinks'.





Pink Score!  

Your weekly student night is getting a pink makeover! Wear your best pink attire and get 50p off the entry fee. We'll be raising money for our Breast Cancer charities all night, so grab yourself a cheeky Pink Drink and drop any spare change you have in our charity buckets. 




About the Charities

This October in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Students' Union is supporting two charities, Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Care.



Cancer Research UK is the world's leading independent charity dedicated to cancer research. The charity works tirelessly to carry out scientific research to help prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. More than one in three of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. Cancer Research's groundbreaking work, funded almost entirely by the general public, will ensure that millions more people survive.




Breast Cancer Care is the UK's leading provider of information, practical assistance and emotional support for anyone affected by breast cancer. The charity is dedicated to making sure everyone affected by breast cancer has access to the best treatment, information and support. Their local support services provide a chance to meet others locally and they've also developed specialist services for younger women and people with secondary breast cancer.
