The UK has turned pink as iconic landmarks around the country supported Breast Cancer Campaign's 'wear it pink' day on Friday October 24.
London's Marble Arch fountain, The Eden Project, St Michael's Mount, Chatsworth House and the OXO Tower joined a host of famous landmarks across the UK to 'Look Good, Do Good'.
Also thinking pink were the Old Joe Clocktower in Birmingham, the Falkirk Wheel in central Scotland and the neon lights of One Piccadilly Circus in London.
A total of 18 landmarks in nine major towns and cities took part in the initiative.
Other landmarks that were tickled pink included Waterloo Bridge, Belfast Castle, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge and the Pulteney Bridge, Bath.
Breast cancer is still the most common cancer in the UK and sadly 50,000 women will be newly diagnosed each year and 12,000 women die from the disease.
It's not too late to find something pink to wear tomorrow and help Breast Cancer Campaign fund vital, life-saving breast cancer research.
Now in its 13th year, the campaign raises over £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Supporters are asked to wear something pink and make a donation.
The money raised helps fund life-saving research into breast cancer at institutions acros the UK.
Donations fund world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving women quicker diagnosis and more effective treatments.
It’s now easier than ever before to take part – look good by wearing the latest pink trends with your friends, family, school or colleagues.
