Wear It Pink: Breast Cancer Now 🎗️

This month (October 2022) we are raising money for Breast Cancer Now the research and care charity! 💖

We’re donating 50% of the profit from our Pink Peppercorns and Pink Himalayan Salt sales during the month of October 💰

On Monday 10th October, we will wear it pink, raise money and help life-changing breast cancer research! 👚

Why? Because every pound raised could help fund a potentially life-saving research breakthrough. Or give someone information they can rely on when they need it most.

We’re also hosting a quiz which you can find below:
