Did you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month? Many charities fighting cancer have their main fundraising and awareness campaigns around this month. For the third year, UK Tights is working together with Breast Cancer Care, one of the largest charities in the United Kingdom. BCCare help and services are free, that’s why fundraising is important for this charity.
How Are UK Tights And Charnos Helping Out?
Last year Melas, the company behind Charnos and Jonathan Aston, joined UK Tights sponsoring the Breast Cancer Care London Show catwalk with free hosiery for their models. This year, both Charnos and UK Tights have agreed to work together once more. Our sister company UK Swimwear has also joined us donating the swimwear to be featured in the catwalks. This is a cause we, Charnos and UK Tights, feel close to; even more, when you think of the millions of people affected by this disease. It is estimated that 1 in 8 women suffers breast cancer, which is terrible stats.
