Throughout October, Leeds Trinity University is lighting up pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The #LeedsLitPink campaign, which was launched on Thursday 1 October, saw organisations across Leeds switching their lighting to pink to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The campaign has been organised by The Yorkshire Haven,​ the Yorkshire branch of national breast cancer charity, The Haven.

Lizzie Sanders, Fundraising Officer at The ​ Haven, commented:

“We are so delighted that Leeds Trinity University has got involved with #LeedsLitPink and supported The Yorkshire Haven with this initiative. The response has been so wonderful and we are delighted with the awareness we have created about the launch of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is so important that people in Yorkshire who have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer know we are here to support them and with the help of Leeds Trinity, we will be able to support more visitors and make a huge difference to their lives at this difficult time.”

The Haven is the only breast cancer charity to provide free, one-to-one, tailored care and support to anyone affected by breast cancer, working in tandem with the NHS by offering complementary healthcare that works alongside mainstream medical treatment.

Leeds Trinity University’s main entrance will remain pink throughout the whole of October to show its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
