I was delighted to lend my support to this year’s #WearItPink day and show my support for the Breast Cancer Now campaign.

Around 4,600 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Scotland. Almost 1,000 people die from the disease. We must act now to stop this devastating disease in its tracks.

Breast Cancer Now’s cutting edge research is making a huge difference. But we all need to join forces and act now, to do our bit to stop women dying from breast cancer by 2050. I’m fully behind the charity’s ambition and I support wear it pink.

Wear it pink raises close to £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer, and this year it’s going to be pinker and more fun than ever before. Anyone can take part, whether at work, at home or at school. All you have to do is wear something pink and donate what you can.

I hope everyone in Scotland will join me by wearing it pink on Friday 21 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.
