The Commissioner and her team wore it pink for Breast Cancer Campaign today.

Merseyside Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy and her office supported Breast Cancer Campaign's biggest fundraising event, #WearItPink  to raise funds for the charity which carries out vital and life-saving research.

To mark the day the team donned pink outfits, decorated the office and there were even pink cupcakes for sale.

Jane Kennedy said: “Our wear it pink day was a huge success and we are thrilled and proud to have been able to support Breast Cancer Campaign.

“We all thoroughly enjoyed turning the office pink for the day while at the same time raising funds for this truly worthwhile cause. Hopefully next year we will be even pinker!”

Breast Cancer Campaign's Wear It Pink Senior Manager Annabel Tompkins said: “A huge thank you to the Merseyside Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy and her staff for taking part in wear it pink this year.

“We are incredibly grateful for her support; it’s so great to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves and all in the name of breast cancer research. Their invaluable donation and support will help us achieve our goal of continuing to fund lifesaving research to improve treatment and ultimately to find a cure for breast cancer.”

In the UK alone, about 50,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year – that equates to 137 women every day.

By March 2013, the charity was funding 86 projects worth almost £16million in 33 locations across the UK and Ireland.

The Breast Cancer Campaign Tissue Bank, the UK’s first ever national breast cancer tissue bank is a unique collaboration with four leading research institutions to create a vital resource of breast cancer tissue for researchers across the UK and Ireland
