Michael Connarty, MP for Linlithgow, has joined the fight against cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fundraiser, Wear It Pink Day.

The theme of the event 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 life-saving breast cancer research.

Michael said: “Every year in the UK more than 50,000 women and around 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.

“Sadly, 12,000 women and 80 men die each year.

“That is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts to support world-class research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments.

“I hope readers will join me and Wear It Pink on Friday, October 24.”
