October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and today, October 17, Fulham Broadway is once again marking it by turning pink.

The day's celebration, which has become an annual event in Fulham, sees volunteers from local breast cancer support centre The Haven decorating the shopping centre and surrounding streets with hundreds of pink balloons as well as Fulham Broadway's first Breast Cancer Awareness Bra Chain.

There will also be an information stand for passers by to ask questions and learn more about what The Haven offers.

The fun begins at 10am and runs through till 5pm.

Organisers hope the event will be as successful as last year's which saw the centre decorated with 1,500 balloons and which raised hundreds for the Haven.

The Haven, in nearby Effie Road offers free of charge, a wide range of therapies which help people to deal with the physical and emotional side effects of breast cancer.
