We are very happy to announce that once again, Apricot Clothing will be supporting our work this year through the sale of their teal-coloured dress and necklace.

Every year since 2014, Apricot have sold a teal-coloured dress in honour of ovarian cancer awareness month, donating 100% profits from sales to Ovacome. To date, they have raised over £120,000 for our support services. The dress has also been featured each year in the Touch of Teal charity fashion show.

This year's dress is a beautiful midi, modeled by Catherine Tyldesley who is best known for her role as Eva Price on ITV's Coronation Street.

Catherine lost a family friend to ovarian cancer and says that she is very passionate about raising awareness: "It’s really important that women don’t feel embarrassed with anything gynaecological and feel comfortable talking about the disease so that everyone becomes more aware".

Apricot also help to raise awareness of signs and symptoms by holding in-store launch events, where they share our B.E.A.T. campaign and speak to customers about the importance of symptom awareness.

This year’s dress and necklace can be purchased in stores or though the Apricot website.
