Alexandra Burke kicks off the Breast Cancer Care International England Women’s game on Sunday

Alexandra Burke will perform at a football match iin aid of Breast Cancer Care.

Alexandra Burke will be performing at this Sunday’s eagerly anticipated football match between England Women and Germany in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

The X-Factor winner and Breast Cancer Care Ambassador will be singing the National Anthem ahead of the special ‘Breast Cancer Care International’ match. Around 55,000 people will attend the match, the same number of people are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK.

Alexandra who is currently preparing for her nationwide stage tour of The Bodyguard says:

I’m a huge football fan and am so excited to be welcoming the women’s team onto the pitch for the Breast Cancer Care International. It’s great to see women’s football drawing in big crowds and I’m wishing the team lots of luck on the day.

Alexandra knows how cruel breast cancer can be after losing an aunt to the brutal disease.

Breast Cancer Care’s support services are a lifeline to people living with a diagnosis. One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer so it’s really important that everyone knows the changes to look and feel for when checking their breasts. Early detection can save lives.

And the players are just as excited for Sunday. England forward Toni Duggan said:

It’s great that on a big occasion like this that we can also raise awareness of breast cancer and the great work that Breast Cancer Care is doing. This is an important game for us and we’re all really looking forward to getting out onto the pitch and I know we’ll be proud to wear the pink laces.

Members of the public will be able to support on the day through donating to bucket collections and will also be able to find out about our new Pass it on campaign which is aimed at spreading our vital breast awareness messaging across the UK.

Tickets for Sunday are now sold out but the match will be shown live on BBC2 from 2.45pm with the game due to kick off at 3pm. Don’t forget to tune in to watch this historic occasion and Alexandra’s performance.
