MSP Dennis Robertson has shown his support for women with breast cancer by wearing pink and encouraging his constituents to do the same.
The Aberdeenshire West MSP joined fellow parliamentarians in supporting Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraiser, ‘Wear it Pink’ - donning pink attire in Holyrood this week to encourage people across Scotland to get involved.
Wear it Pink raises over two million pounds each year, and calls on supporters across the country to ditch the day-to-day colours and pull on some pink to raise money for life-saving breast cancer research.
Anyone can take part, whether in school, at work or at home. All you have to do is wear something pink and donate whatever you can.
Dennis Robertson MSP said: “With around 4,600 women diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 1,000 women still losing their lives, now more than ever we must show our support for breast cancer research. Wear it Pink is an easy way to get involved and bring awareness to Breast Cancer Now’s cutting-edge research.
“I hope that everyone in Aberdeenshire West will join me in wearing pink for Friday, October 23, and show support for Breast Cancer Now. If we work together, we can make a huge impact for women and help to fight against breast cancer.”
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.
