WHITEFORD BACKS TURRIFF'S 'RELAY FOR LIFE'

Thursday, 18 February 2010

SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford has given her backing to the launch of Cancer Research's 'Relay for Life' at the Turriff United Social Club last night.

Dr Whiteford passed on a message of support to the organisers of the extremely well-attended meeting from local MP and First Minister Alex Salmond.

Speaking at the meeting in Turriff last night, SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford said:

"The fact that so many people of all ages, and from across the community, turned out for the launch reminds us that most of us have had our lives touched by cancer, directly or indirectly.

"Relay for Life is a great reminder that treatment is improving all the time and many people are recovering from cancer nowadays. Taking part is a great way to remember those we've lost, and through fundraising, provide hope for the future. Above all, events like Relay for Life let those currently undergoing treatment that they have the support of the whole community behind them.

"I'm delighted to support the Relay for Life and wish Lynne and her team every success in organising the event."
