MP HAILS MAGNIFICENT EFFORT AT TURRIFF 'RELAY FOR LIFE' EVENT

Monday, 28 June 2010

Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford attended the closing ceremony of the 'Relay for Life' event at The Haughs, Turriff yesterday (Sunday). The 24 hour-long event ended at midday yesterday where the organisers revealed that over £135,000 had been raised from the Turriff effort.

Dr Whiteford attended the launch of the event in Turriff back in February and was delighted to be asked back by the organisers to speak at the closing ceremony.

Commenting, the local MP said:

"This is a truly staggering amount to have raised and everyone involved can be very proud indeed of their efforts.

"The fact that so many people of all ages, and from across the community, turned out for this event 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 know that they have the support of the whole community behind them.

"I'm delighted to support the Relay for Life and congratulate the committee on a truly magnificent effort."
