Friday 20 October is Wear it Pink Day, the annual campaign fundraising day organised by Breast Cancer Now.

Every year in Scotland around 4800 women and 30 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. That is around 94 people a week.

Breast Cancer Now is the breast cancer research and support charity. It wants to improve the lives of people affected by breast cancer in Scotland and across the UK.

By wearing pink today people are helping to drive forward research and give life-changing support. By wearing it pink, you can help the charity get there.

Martin Whitfield MSP said:
