We've been working with Breakthrough Breast Cancer since 2001, raising over £17 million for Breakthrough's vital research, campaigning and education work. This pioneering charity is dedicated to the prevention, treatment and ultimate eradication of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK. Nearly 48,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK and nearly 1000 women will die every month from this disease.
M&S raises money through donations on sales of specially designed products during Breast Cancer Awareness Month every October and as part of the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign in April-May.
Breakthrough also benefits from a donation on the post-surgery lingerie range, available all year round. M&S sells more bras per week than anyone else on the high street and was the first to launch a collection of post-surgery lingerie suitable for women who have undergone breast surgery.
The collection was designed to meet the practical needs of women affected by breast cancer, while still being pretty, feminine and sexy. All garments have been developed in consultation with Breakthrough supporters and M&S customers and the range carries a 10% donation to Breakthrough.
M&S employees also raise money for Breakthrough every October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month by organising fundraising activities in store.
You can also donate your foreign or outdated currency to Breakthrough at M&S Bureau de Change counters across the country using the Change 4 Change charity collection cans.
