Magazine editors will almost always give a charity appeal coverage if it links up with a public holiday or date such as Valentine’s Day or Bonfire Night. Breakthrough Breast Cancer is following this trend by linking its Crocus Walk with Mother’s Day.“Organise a Crocus Walk to celebrate Mothers’ Day” reads the charity’s full-page advert in lifestyle magazines.
