Turn Honiton Pink on Saturday
The Honiton edition of the Midweek Herald will go pink tomorrow - to promote the event.
More than 121 businesses and organisations in the town are supporting the initiative, part of a pilot project.
Honiton and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry has spearheaded the event on behalf of the charity after Honiton was chosen to trial the pink initiative.
“Support has come from across the community,” said Margaret Lewis, the chamber’s secretary.
She has personally visited nearly every business in Honiton to promote the event and says she has been overwhelmed by people’s support.
