Breast Cancer Awareness month: Shop and support worthy cause

The month of October is dedicated to supporting this hugely important campaign

This week, we're shopping for a very worthy cause that's close to our hearts, Breast Cancer Awareness. Not only are all these products awesome because they're pink  – they are even more fabulous as the companies behind them will be donating a percentage of the sale to breast cancer charities.

Throughout the whole of October, Little Greene customers will actively be helping to support those battling breast cancer. Little Greene have teamed up once again with Breast Cancer Haven – pledging 15p from every tin of paint or roll of wallpaper sold will go directly to charity. The renowned paint experts have a capsule collection of pinks, and although the shade doesn't have to be pink to donate, what better way to really embrace it than brightening up your home with a joyous pink wall?! We love the dusky pink shade 'Hellebore' – very on-trend for this season.

Managing director David Mottershead confirms, 'Last year our loyal customers raised an incredible £12,000 to help Breast Cancer Haven to provide counselling and therapies to those that need support.'
