Across the weekend of the 19-20th April all six Guinness Premiership rugby matches, including Wasps game against Saracens at Vicarage Road, are turning pink to raise funds and awareness for the charity. Women can purchase tickets for all the games at a special price of £15, with £4.25 of every ticket coming directly to Breast Cancer Care.
Looking ahead to the weekend and speaking about Breast Cancer Care, Wasps Captain Lawrence Dallaglio said: "It doesn't matter if you know nothing about rugby, this weekend is all about showing your support for the 120 people who are diagnosed with breast cancer every day. Each and every one of them needs our support. That's why I'm trying to encourage as many people as possible to take part in the Tackled Pink weekend which raises money to help people dealing with breast cancer. All you need to do is get your friends and family together, don your pink outfits and join us for a game of first-rate rugby."
