Organisers of the hugely successful Moonlight Prowl are this year celebrating the 10th anniversary of the fund-raising event.

Over the last decade, the Prowl has raised over £700,000 for ground breaking breast cancer research and established a strong partnership with the University of Aberdeen and Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

This year, to mark this significant milestone, Kinnaird Head will be flooded in pink light to launch a year of special fund-raising events.

Moonlight Prowl Chairperson Margaret-Jane Cardno said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses.

“The Kinnaird Head lighthouse is an iconic symbol of Fraserburgh and we see no better way of launching our 10th anniversary year than by using the lighthouse as a signal of strength, hope and guidance.”

Ron Morrice, Chairperson of the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses said: “Kinnaird Head was the first lighthouse in Scotland, putting Fraserburgh on the map. The Moonlight Prowl Committee with their amazing fund raising efforts over the years, for cancer research, has also raised the profile of Fraserburgh.

“It gives us great pleasure in helping the Committee kick start their tenth year of fund raising events. On the night, it is our intention to have Kinnaird Head illuminated in pink, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness, until midnight. This is a unique event in the 227 years history of the lighthouse.”

The event will coincide with a ladies’ Burns Supper at the Museum.

The Moonlight Prowl will take place on Saturday, June 6, and participants can register online at http://www.moonlightprowl.co.uk

Registration for the Prowl will start on Sunday, January 25, with a launch event from 12noon until 4pm at Fraserburgh’s Community and Sports Centre at Maconochie Place.
