World Cancer Day

Tomorrow, Thursday, February 4 is World Cancer Day.

The Movember Foundation, along with Cancer Research UK, Anthony Nolan, and Breast Cancer Care are all coming together to transform the lives of the millions of men and women who are affected by cancer every day.

All of these charities do amazing work and need our help to continue providing the services which help cancer victims live longer and happier lives.

The charities have created a unity wrist band to try and help raise funding for this great cause.

If you would like to purchase one you can visit:

And, if wristbands are not your style, they always appreciate donations which can be given at:

Register to Vote Week

This week marks the National Voter Registration Drive 2016.

Recently Scotland has seen a huge increase in political awareness and participation.

It seems we have all started to realise that politics is distinctly not just for middle-aged men in suits, but is in fact for everyone, as it effects our wages, the bills we pay, our health service, our schools and everything else around us.

That is why it is so important that this year, on May 5, you make sure that your voice is heard and your vote is counted.

In a great step forward for democracy, this year for the first time people aged 16 and 17 will be able to vote in the Scottish Parliament Election.

It is crucial that young people in society make their voices heart, so I implore you before April 18, visit, and make sure your voice is heard.

RAMH Life Skills

I was saddened to see that RAMH Life Skills shop on Broomlands Street in Paisley closed last Saturday, however, it’s great that they will remain within the constituency by moving the service to Johnstone.

RAMH Life Skills is a fantastic service.

RAMH take in donated furniture and a whole host of other items, then repair and upcycle these items, and then use all the profits to support local people, and their carers and families.

As well as this, they help people who are moving into new homes after being homeless or in hospital and provide them top quality furniture and other important things to help them turn their new house into a great home.

RAMH are a very important organisation, and the work they do really is invaluable.

They are always looking for people to help them, by volunteering or a small donation.
