'Think pink' with Peacocksї 2009 breast cancer awareness range for Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK

Peacocks, the hottest value fashion retailer on the high street, has teamed up with Cancer Research UK for the fifth consecutive year to produce a range of fun, fashionable and affordable pink products. The must-have range will be on sale in all Peacocks stores throughout the country from mid-August to support the charity’s new campaign, 'Join the fight for women’s survival'. The campaign aims to increase awareness of breast cancer and raise money to help fight the disease.

This year’s collection has something for everyone, from clothing and accessories to gifts, with a donation from the sale of each product going to Cancer Research UK.

Hot on the heels of the latest trends, this year’s products include stylish wellies, perfect for music festivals, trendy ‘boy shorts’ and a set of three vanity cases, one to suit every occasion this summer.

Tim Bettley, Peacocks managing director, said: “This is the fifth year that Peacocks has joined forces with Cancer Research UK to promote the charity’s breast cancer awareness campaign. The partnership has already raised £1.5million and we hope to raise another £350,000 this year. Peacocks is encouraging all women to support Cancer Research UK’s ‘Join the fight for women’s survival’ campaign to make it the best year yet.”
