North West Hampshire MP, the Rt Hon Sir George Young, joined Cancer Research UK for a pancake breakfast on Shrove Tuesday with over 60 other MPs as part of the run up to Britain’s Biggest All-Day Breakfast on March 1.
Cancer Research UK and Kellogg’s are inviting people up and down the country to follow suit by hosting their own breakfast parties for family, friends and colleagues on Friday March 1.
For the fourth year Britain’s Biggest All-Day Breakfast aims to raise funds for vital cancer research as well as raise awareness about the importance of dietary fibre as a step towards good health.
The initiative has already raised over £800,000 for pioneering research and this year the target is to raise £230,000.
Sir George said: “It is great to be able to take part in Britain’s Biggest All-Day Breakfast for MPs. This is a wonderful initiative which we all hope will help Cancer Research UK work up an appetite for healthy eating on March 1st.”
Susan Osborne, Cancer Research UK’s Director of Communications, said: “It’s fantastic that so many MPs are helping us in supporting Britain’s Biggest All-Day Breakfast. It’s a really easy way to help support Cancer Research UK.”
You can still join in the fun by toasting your health any time on March 1st. Make a date with your friends, colleagues or neighbours. By suggesting your guests donate £1 each, you can play an essential role in this national awareness and fundraising event.
