Mayor of Fareham Councillor Connie Hockley, pictured with Marian Parfitt from Breast Cancer Haven, said: ​‘Having lost two dear friends to the disease, breast cancer awareness is an issue close to my heart. That’s why I chose the Breast Cancer Haven in Titchfield as one of my ​m​ayoral charities for the year.

​‘​I’m delighted therefore that we have supported it in this way, it’s a fantastic opportunity to help spread the message.​’

Breast Cancer Awareness Month lasts the whole of October.
