For the sixth year a big hearted north east community is launching one of the areas largest fund raising events.

Since its inception in 2006 the Fraserburgh based Moonlight Prowl has raised almost £500,000 for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the University of Aberdeen.

Registration for the 2011 event will close on 16 April 2011 and to encourage ladies to stay focused over the Easter holidays the Prowl committee is issuing a new challenge.

Committee Member Jacqueline Watt said, “During the Easter holiday’s ladies should be on at least week 4 of their training schedule. In order to promote the Prowl during the holiday period we are issuing a challenge for ladies to send us the most unusual picture of their Moonlight Prowl t-shirts. There will be awards for the most unusual location, the furthest distance travelled and also the most interesting shot.

To take part in this fun competition email your pictures to mjcardno@hotmail.co.uk, remember to include your contact details and lots of information about your photograph.

The winning entries and a selection of your pictures will be published in the Fraserburgh Herald and on the Moonlight Prowl website – www.moonlightprowl.co.uk.
