Onlookers up and down the country saw the night sky blush bright when several of the UK’s iconic landmarks lit up in pink in support of Breast Cancer Campaign’s wear it pink day.

Landmarks that stretched from the Thames all the way to the Eden Project and St Michael’s Mount wore the shade as a colourful reminder for the nation to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s wear it pink day, held Friday, 24 October.

The message beamed in all 18 landmarks that covered London, Belfast, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Bath, Falkirk, St Austell and Marazion was simple but striking: "Look Good, Do Good."

Danielle Atkinson, head of public fundraising at Breast Cancer Campaign, said: “We’re thrilled that some of the nation’s most beautiful and well-known landmarks joined us to ‘Look Good, Do Good’ ahead of wear it pink day.”

“By turning pink in support of Breast Cancer Campaign all of these iconic landmarks are helping us to remind the nation of the importance of funding breast cancer research.”
