Pretty in pink he might not be, but Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale MP David Mundell certainly looks to be in the pink about showing his support for Breast Cancer Now.

The Scottish Secretary is also urging his constituents in the Borders to follow his lead by dressing up in pink to take part in its latest nationwide fundraising event on Friday, October 21.

Mr Mundell said: “I’m fully committed to standing up for women and families affected by the disease, and I am very proud to take part in Wear It Pink.”

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

“Through cutting-edge research, Breast Cancer Now are tackling the disease from all angles to ensure that, by 2050, everyone that develops the disease will live. But we all need to join forces and act now, and in wear it pink there is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved.”

Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Now said:

“It’s wonderful to see so much parliamentary support for wear it pink. It’s a great opportunity for friends, co-workers and families across the UK to have some fun, wear something pink and show their support for those affected by breast cancer.

“Far too many women are still losing their lives to this dreadful disease. On Friday 21st October, every cake baked, every feather boa or pink tie worn and every laugh shared will help us create a future where no one dies from breast cancer.

“We will all be standing together, with colleagues and friends, to stop breast cancer taking the lives of the people we love – and we very much hope you’ll join us.”
