a very good cause

To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month, Deborah Sparks and her daughter Verity (above) have designed a t-shirt to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. For every t-shirt sold in October, 20% of proceeds will go towards supporting the charity. This is a cause very close Deborah’s heart, as she herself is a breast cancer survivor. “I was diagnosed in the spring of 2008, and have been clear for two and a half years now. My husband has done lots of fundraising through running, and though I want to be involved, I’ve not felt well enough to contribute in the same way. So my daughter Verity and I decided to create this t-shirt together to support the campaign. Breakthrough Breast Cancer is the leading breast cancer charity, and the increasing survival rate of woman with this disease is all down to charities like these who raise awareness and develop treatments. Every 11 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with breast cancer, so it’s good to know there are organisations like these out there”. Click here to see Deborah’s organic cotton t-shirt.
