An isles politicians has shown his support for a major annual charity event in the fight against cancer.

“On a personal level, I’m very grateful to Macmillan Cancer Support for the fantastic work they do and the real impact they have on the lives of those families affected by cancer.”
Mr Halcro Johnston said he hoped that by “raising a mug” and taking part in the event, folk can support those delivering cancer care and the people it benefits.
