IT’S TIME to dig out those pink hats, scarves, trousers and t-shirts as the "wear it pink" day looms.

The event, which will take place in two days’ time, on 28th October, is run by the Breast Cancer Campaign, in an attempt to raise awareness of Breast Cancer.

The campaign, which has support from businesses, colleges and schools from all over Scotland, asks people to don an item of pink clothing and raise awareness of a cancer which affects both women and men. 

Also joining in with the campaign is SNP MSP for Central Scotland, Clare Adamson.

“I would like to pledge my support for the wear it pink Breast Cancer campaign which affects so many people in Scotland.” Ms Adamson 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 would like to encourage everyone in my region of Central Scotland to support wear it pink on October 28, to raise valuable funds for breast cancer research.”
