“As a Breast Cancer Ambassador, I am particularly passionate about standing up for the women and families affected by the disease in the Highlands”
Drew Hendry, MP for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey has shown his support for women with breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging his constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraiser, wear it pink, on Friday 23rd October.
Drew joined fellow parliamentarians in wearing it pink in Westminster this week to encourage people across Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey to get involved. Now in its 14th year, wear it pink raises over £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer, and this year it is back and bigger, brighter and bolder than ever before.
Drew has also recently demonstrated his continued support for women with breast cancer by becoming a parliamentary ambassador for Breast Cancer Now, joining 190 MPs across the country in urging fellow politicians and constituents that immediate action must be taken to stop the disease taking lives.
Drew Hendry MP said:
“Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. This is why we all must come together to support Breast Cancer Now’s cutting-edge research, and, in wear it pink, there is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved.
“As a Breast Cancer Ambassador, I am particularly passionate about standing up for the women and families affected by the disease in the Highlands and I am very proud to take part in wear it pink. I hope everyone in the local community will join me in wearing it pink on Friday 23 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”
