Andrew Mitchell MP visits ASDA in Sutton Coldfield to support the Tickled Pink Campaign for Breast Cancer charities

Andrew Mitchell MP has visited the ASDA superstore in Sutton Coldfield to support the Tickled Pink Campaign and met Sue Sneddon, Community Colleague at ASDA Minworth and volunteers who took part in the Tickled Pink Breast Cancer Slimming Challenge, which was launched earlier this year.

Tickled Pink is an annual fundraising and awareness campaign, which began in 1996. Over the past 14 years £21 million has been raised for Breast Cancer Campaign and Breast Cancer Care, through sales of pink products and in-store fundraising with ASDA colleagues and customers.

Breast cancer affects someone in the UK every 15 minutes, impacting on an average of 100 people and families a day. Fundraising is crucial in helping people affected by breast cancer and supporting research for a cure.

Andrew Mitchell congratulated the group on their success in the Slimming Challenge and said, “As a Patron of ‘Breast Friends’ in Sutton Coldfield I am acutely aware of the challenges facing Breast Cancer patients and of the valuable work carried out by Breast Cancer Charities on their behalf.

“I am delighted to support the Sutton Coldfield ASDA ‘Tickled Pink’ Campaign which will help to provide essential funds for the care of breast cancer sufferers and the efforts to find a cure for this devastating disease.”
