Gil’s in the pink to support charity day

BEARSDEN MSP Gil Paterson is joining forces with Breast Cancer Campaign to raise awareness of ‘wear it pink’ day.

On Friday, October 28, supporters in schools, and businesses throughout the country are encouraged to don an item of pink in support of the campaign and each donate £2 to fund innovative world-class breast cancer research. Last year hundreds of thousands of people took part to help improve survival rates for the one in eight women who experience breast cancer during their lifetime.

Mr Paterson said: “It is estimated that there are over 41,000 women and 150 men alive in Scotland who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease and would like to encourage everyone in Bearsden and Milngavie and throughout the country to support wear it pink on October 28, to raise valuable funds for breast cancer research.”
