Asda Tickled Pink is our longest-running award-winning fundraising and awareness partnership between Asda, Breast Cancer Now and CoppaFeel!. The partnership is now in our 28th year, and it has raised over £90 million since 1996 and is on track to exceed our target of raising over £100 million for breast cancer charities by 2026.

Asda Tickled Pink is on a mission to make checking your boobs, pecs and chests, whoever you are, as normal as your Asda shop. With your help, Tickled Pink is raising funds for better breast cancer treatments, vital education and life-changing support. Together, we’re putting breast cancer awareness on everyone’s list.

What's the impact?

When Tickled Pink launched in 1996, 6 in 10 women survived 10 years after diagnosis. Today, it’s 8 in 10. Tickled Pink’s long-term, scale support has played an important role in this transformation of survival rates. Tickled Pink funding has specifically led to over 440 world-class scientific discoveries, helping Breast Cancer Now researchers discover how to prevent breast cancer, save lives, and help people to live well with and beyond the disease.

Our long term partnership has allowed us to have strategic input with Breast Cancer Now and made breast cancer awareness a priority for our business. Breast Cancer Now is great at engaging our colleagues and ensuring they have the opportunity to get involved in fundraising activities and are aware of the incredible work that the charity delivers.

What we do

Know your normal

Getting to know what’s normal for your boobs is important so you can spot any new or unusual changes early. We recommend having a look and feel of your chest, up to your collarbone and under your armpit, on a regular basis. The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment. So, it’s important to check your boobs regularly and see a GP if you notice a change.

The real self checkout

You'll see breast-checking reminders in Asda stores all year round, including on George lingerie tags, pharmacy dispensary bags, delivery vans, changing room mirrors and on food shelves. There’s even a reminder to check your boobs and pecs on the back of your receipt.

About our fundraising

Asda colleagues and customers raise money for Tickled Pink throughout the year, particularly during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. From tombolas and hosting pyjama parties, to testing their limits on epic treks and bicycle rides, Asda colleagues do it all to raise vital funds for Tickled Pink.

This year you can also help fundraising online or on Asda’s self-serve checkouts. Or you can volunteer your time to take part in Tickled Pink’s annual bucket collection in-store during October.

Every year, Asda suppliers do an amazing job in supporting Tickled Pink by turning their products you know and love pink. Not only do Asda suppliers support with donations from these products, but some also include vital boob checking reminders on their packaging. Look out for this years’ range of products on Asda shelves in store and online during October.
