Angus MP Mike Weir has shown his support for Breast Cancer Campaign’s ‘wear it pink’ day and is urging Brechiners to do the same.
The politician donned some unique pink accessories as part of his show of support and is encouraging everyone to show their support for the charity by taking part in ‘wear it pink’ day on Friday, October 24.
He said: “Every year in the UK over 50,000 women and around 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Sadly, 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease each year.
“This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fund-raising efforts to support world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments. I hope you’ll all join me by wearing it pink on Friday, October 24, and showing your support for breast cancer research.”
He added: “Before they let me put on the Elton John glasses, I had to promise not to break into a rendition of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.”
The theme of ‘wear it pink’ this year is to ‘look good, do good’ in support of breast cancer research.
On Friday October 24, people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to wear pink in the office, at home or at school. Donations raised by this year’s fashion inspired event will go to Breast Cancer Campaign to fund lifesaving breast cancer research.
