Bright pink sheep raise awareness of breast cancer

A flock of 70 sheep have been turned pink in aid of breast cancer awareness month.

 

The Udder Farm Shop at East Stour, Dorset have praised the support of the Salisbury district hospital’s charity Stars Appeal and hoped that turning the sheep pink could be a reminder to women of the importance of getting checked.

 

Owner Jane Down used her own experience of breast cancer to help highlight the cause and help raise money.

 

She said: “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK - one in eight women will develop it in their lifetime, as I have.

 

"If our pink sheep can help to encourage a few more women to check their breasts and if our pink cakes can raise a few pounds for the Clinic, then that’s great.”
