Stevenson Wears it Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness 2015

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has shown his support for women with breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging his constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraiser wear it pink on Friday 23rd October.

Wear it pink, the UK’s biggest pink fundraiser, calls on supporters across the country pull on some pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research.

Mr Stevenson joined fellow parliamentarians in wearing it pink in Holyrood to encourage people across Scotland to get involved.

Mr Stevenson said:

“Breast cancer is at a tipping point right now. Every year in Scotland around 4600 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and sadly nearly 1000 people 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.

“Together, we can make a big difference for women with breast cancer, now and in the future. I hope everyone in my local community will join me in wearing it pink on Friday 23 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”

Now in its 14th year, ‘wear it pink’ raises over £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer. 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.

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.
