A new campaign has been launched to help overcome lockdown boredom, raise some money for charity and beat the drum for breast cancer symptom awareness – especially at a time when visiting GPs is more difficult.

Prevent Breast Cancer is encouraging the nation to bake a boob cake to get women thinking about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

Victoria Ekanoye, best known for played Angie Appleton on Corrie, is behind the movement is hoping that British women will be able to have some fun but also keep checking themselves.

Victoria’s family has been significantly impacted by breast cancer – with both her mother and sister receiving diagnoses. She is incredibly passionate to raise awareness of how families are affected by the disease, and to encourage younger women, and men, to check themselves regularly for lumps or any other unusual symptoms.
