Breast Cancer Awareness Month’s Charitable Treats!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and once again, the high street has come up trumps with fashionable fund-raising buys. From clothes and accessories to beauty and homeware, there’s plenty of ways to get in on the charity action in style.

We’ll be relegating our staple blue skinny jeans for Marks & Spencer’s hot pink pair, and adding Stella & dot’s winged trinket to our wrist candy pile up. Don’t worry if you’re not into pink either. You can show your support with Debenhams’ chic lace peplum top instead, or update your grooming kit with GHD’s limited edition ‘Cherry Blossom’ styler. Want to know how your money helps? Just £25 could pay for an hour of a senior specialist’s time, while £500 could buy a transilluminator, a piece of equipment essential for scientists studying DNA during experiments. Shopping that makes you feel good – what’s not to love? GG
