Gillian Martin, MSP for Aberdeenshire East, has shown support for women affected by breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging her constituents to take part in the UK’s biggest, brightest and pinkest fundraiser - Wear it Pink on Friday, October 21.

Ms Martin joined fellow parliamentarians at Holyrood to encourage people across Scotland to get involved and help support Breast Cancer Now’s efforts to ensure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer lives - an ambition shared by the Scottish Government and all party leaders in scotland.

She said: “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.

“I hope everyone will join me by wearing it pink on Friday, October 21.”
