SHOWING SOLIDARITY FOR Breast Cancer Now was Moray’s MP Angus Robertson, who is urging his constituent to back the annual drive ‘Wear it Pink’ drive for the charity.
Mr Robertson recently joined other parliamentarians in support of a campaign that is now in its 14th consecutive year, raising around £2million annual for breast cancer research.
The MP said: “Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. Every year in the UK around 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and sadly nearly 12,000 women still lose their lives to the disease.
“This is why we all must come together to support Breast Cancer Now’s cutting-edge research, and, in wear it pink, there is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved.”
Mr Robertson added that together people can make a “big difference” for women with breast cancer now and in the future, adding: “I hope everyone in the local community will join me in wearing it pink on Friday 23 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”
Launched in June 2015 with the ambition of ensuring that no one dies from the disease by 2050, Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
