For the sixth year in a row, big-hearted Brochers are preparing for one of the area’s largest fundraising events, the Moonlight Prowl.
If your home or business is along the route, the committee would like you to join in the spirit of the event and decorate your premises in pink.
Since its inception in 2006, Fraserburgh’s Moonlight Prowl has raised £460,000 for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the University of Aberdeen.
The Moonlight Prowl will be take place this Saturday (June 4) and once again around 1,000 ladies will take to the streets in a sea of pink to raise funds for ground breaking new research programmes.
Many local businesses and residents decorate their premises, homes and gardens with banners, balloons and ribbons to show their support for all the ladies and encourage them as they undertake the walk.
Chairperson Pamela Manette said, “We are overwhelmed by the number of ladies who have registered for the Moonlight Prowl. In order to support the girls we would ask that local businesses and residents on the route decorate their shop fronts, homes and gardens.
“This warm welcome to Fraserburgh not only makes those who have traveled to the event feel at home, but it provides a real boost to the ladies who have trained hard all year to undertake the long walk.”
Motorists are reminded that Seaforth Street, Station Brae and South Harbour Road in Fraserburgh will be closed on Saturday, June 4 from 9pm to 10.30pm. The closures, which are being put in place for the Moonlight Prowl Charity Walk, are necessary to ensure the health and safety of the public.
