THIS Spring Cancer Research UK will be celebrating the 10th birthday of its annual fundraising event - Britain's Biggest Breakfast.

To mark the occasion, Sarah Williamson and Jo Patching, two of the charity's Area Volunteer Managers, partied in their pyjamas as they appealed for the public to donate and register for Cancer Research UK's Britain's Biggest Breakfast this month.

The charity is calling for people across the UK to make it the biggest breakfast yet by throwing a breakfast 'party' to raise money for research into all types of cancer.

To join in the fun, all supporters have to do is hold a breakfast and invite friends, family or colleagues to pop along and enjoy a healthy, nutritious start to the day. How and where breakfast or brunches are held is up to the host and, while most people choose work, school or home, organisers can be as creative as they wish - dressing up is optional!

Cancer Research UK Area Volunteer Manager for Hertfordshire, Sarah Williamson, said: "In honour of the Britain's Biggest Breakfast 10th birthday celebrations, hosts could throw a special birthday breakfast, complete with a nutritious birthday 'cake' made from fruit - they could even put up some decorations to help get their guests into the party spirit".

"Whatever the theme, not only will everyone love tucking into some tasty breakfast-time treats but, by asking guests to make a donation to Cancer Research UK, hosts will be helping to beat cancer at the same time."

Experts estimate that about a quarter of all cancer deaths are caused by unhealthy diets and obesity. Britain's Biggest Breakfast aims to raise awareness of how eating a healthy breakfast, as part of a balanced diet including plenty of fruit and vegetables, can help reduce an individual's risk of cancer.
