Selkirk clubs and societies are being offered the unique opportunity to hear from leading breast cancer charity, Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

It is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to stopping women getting, and dying from, the disease.

A spokesperson said: “Breast cancer has become the most common cancer amongst women in Scotland, and each year we lose 1,000 mothers, daughters, sisters and friends to the disease. The charity recognises that this is a disease which affects communities on a very local level.

“Following a recent recruitment drive, the charity has announced a new army of supporters, known as Community Ambassadors.

“They aim to be the charity’s soldiers on the ground, out and about speaking to people in the Selkirk community. Talks can cover a range of interesting topics depending on the audience, including breast awareness, fundraising opportunities and the research work that Breakthrough Breast Cancer carries out here in Scotland.”
