October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to mark the occasion Future Publishing’s Cross Stitcher magazine is raising money for Breast Cancer Care's Pink Friday Campaign.

An exclusive ribbon pattern designed by Emily Peacock is available to download on Cross Stitcher’s dedicated Just Giving site for a suggested £2 donation to Breast Cancer Care.

Emily’s design is a beautiful and versatile version of the iconic breast cancer ribbon. It can be cross stitched, sewn, knitted or crocheted and made into anything from a greeting card, picture or corsage to a pretty pin-broach. It’s a fun and rewarding craft project that anyone can try – and all for a very good cause!

Judy Beard, Director of Fundraising at Breast Cancer Care, said: “Each year around 50,000 people in the UK receive a breast cancer diagnosis. Breast Cancer Care provides support and information for people affected and the money raised through Pink Fridays is vital in allowing us to continue to provide support services. We’re delighted to have the team at Cross Stitcher on board for Pink Fridays -stitching the ribbon is a fun and imaginative way to raise funds.”

Let's see how much we can raise. Download the ribbon project here and don’t forget the £2 donation – it could help save a life.
