MORAY MP ANGUS ROBERTSON has been underlining his continuing support this week for the nationwide fight against breast cancer.

Mr Robertson is a firm supporter of the ‘Wear it Pink’ campaign which has been raising awareness of the caner – and has raised around £2million each year to help fund research into the condition around the world.

This week an event was held at Westminster to publicise the forthcoming Breast Cancer Awareness month, which takes place in October – with the highlight coming on Wear it Pink day, Friday, October 21.

Mr Robertson said: “Wear it Pink is both a fun and serious campaign raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

“October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month and there will be many people around Moray who will be taking part in ‘Wear it Pink’ events in schools, in workplaces and with friends.

“I am very pleased to support the work of the UK’s largest breast cancer charity ‘Breast Cancer Now’ and I would encourage people who would like to take part in fundraising and raising awareness of their work to visit their campaign website to see how you can get involved.”
