PAINT the town pink in Urmston this weekend to help in the fight against breast cancer.

The north Trafford town will be awash with colour for the Paint Urmston Pink event on Saturday April 15 in aid of Prevent Breast Cancer.

The one-day extravaganza, which has been organised with The Urmston Partnership, will see the town transformed into a pink haven.

Eden Square will be the main base on Saturday, with entertainment provided by Wayne Devlin at 10am and the Sweet Rhythm Big Band at 12.30 and 2.15pm.

Various businesses will be flying Prevent Breast Cancer’s special pink bunting and be offering pink treats in store. Miss Ellie’s Travel have also offered to donate £10 from each holiday sold over the Bank Holiday Weekend to the charity.

Urmston Artisan Market staged their own event on April 1 to kick off the fundraising by turning the market, including even some of their produce, pink in support of the charity.
