This year for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month we are calling all creatives to support the amazing work of the Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839). Lynne and Lisa are challenging you all to join us and upcycle something in pink #PINKCYCLED

Not only will this be a fantastic way to raise awareness and funds for such an amazing charity but it will also be a great fun challenge, allowing us to unleash our creativity pink style.

So how can you join in the fun?

Your mission should you choose to accept it is simple, you are challenged to upcycle anything you like but is has to be in PINK!! The more creative the better, share it on social media under the hashtag #PINKCYCLED

If you can do blogs on how you made it, ‘how to videos’ etc then even better, we want to create a real buzz, raise money and also use it as a way of sharing top upcycling and product knowledge within the upcycling community.

We would love it if you can complete your task by the 13th November, then you simply need to list it on to the Preloved website and when it gets sold ask the buyer to pay into the #PINKCYCLED Just Giving page.

Preloved will be popping the event on their website so further information and updates can be found there.
