The Saturdays get Tickled Pink

To celebrate Tickled Pink’s 15th anniversary, Asda will be hosting the perfect ‘Girls’ Night Out’ at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in West London on 12th January 2012.  The star-studded line-up includes fantastic vocals from Breast Cancer Care Ambassador Alexandra Burke and friends, with performances from Chipmunk and Dionne Bromfield plus special guests The Saturdays.  Not only will this be a great night of entertainment it will also help raise vital funds for two important breast cancer charities, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign.

There’s never been a better reason for a big night out with the girls as 100% of ticket sales will be donated to Tickled Pink, which has so far raised a total of £25 million for the charities and £4 million last year alone thanks to the fundraising efforts of Asda customers, colleagues and suppliers.  Join the 15th anniversary celebrations by simply buying a ticket to the concert and having a fantastic ‘Girls’ Night Out’ with Alexandra Burke and friends.

Alexandra Burke, said:  “When Asda told me about their ‘Girls’ Night Out’ concert I couldn’t wait to get everyone involved. It is going to be such a great evening of music and entertainment all in aid of a really important cause.

“I’ve been a Breast Cancer Care Ambassador for a number of years now and am delighted to work with Asda in supporting their campaign and helping them to continue the fantastic work that they do to support breast cancer charities. A ‘Girls’ Night Out’ has never been more exciting or significant – see you there!”

Judith McKenna, Chief Operating Officer at Asda, said: “This event marks 15 years of fundraising and £25 million raised by Asda colleagues and shoppers to date. The ‘Girls’ Night Out’concert is an uplifting way for people around the UK to get involved in fundraising for two important breast cancer charities, raising money for both the much needed research into breast cancer and after care.  With all proceeds going directly to the Tickled Pink campaign – this event provides a great night out and for a great cause.”

Saturdays perform at charity show

The Saturdays have put the sparkle into Christmas with an intimate charity show.

The girl group wore co-ordinated glitzy sequinned mini-dresses to play the Breast Cancer Campaign show at London venue Scala.

Hundreds of lucky fans watched the five-strong band perform at the Concert For A Cure with support from Daisy Dares You and Lauren Pritchard.

The show, supported by Kit Kat Senses, raised £100,000 for the charity.

Mollie King from The Saturdays said: “This is a fantastic event to be involved in. We really hope that we have inspired people to donate money to such an important cause.”

Breast Cancer Awareness month took place in October with Kit Kat Senses donating 10 pence from each special edition pink chocolate bar.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK and accounts for nearly one in three of all cancer cases in women.

Nearly 46,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in the UK each year.
