RAISING AWARENESS OF the forthcoming ‘Wear it Pink’ day saw Moray’s MP recently donning a pink tank-top in support of Breast Cancer Now.
Douglas joined hundreds of Westminster MPs in giving backing to the national charity’s annual fundraiser which takes place in October.
He said: “I was more than happy to show my support for the valuable work done by Breast Cancer Now and encourage people to wear a dash of pink on October 20th in support of their campaign.
“Anyone can take part in ‘Wear it Pink’ which brings together schools, workplaces and communities. You can wear a splash of pink or hold an event at home, at work or school and help by making a donation to the charity.
“Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. One in eight women will face it in their lifetime, and every year around 11,500 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease which is why I’m urging everyone to get involved. It’s a fun and easy way to support Breast Cancer Now’s vital research which aims to stop breast cancer taking the lives of those we love.”
Baroness Delyth Morgan who is the Chief Executive at the charity added: “It is fantastic that so many MPs dressed-up in pink at our Westminster event and we are really grateful for all of the support and enthusiasm shown.”
