Gibson to wear red for Haiti

News release
Immediate release
03/02/10

Highlands and Islands SNP MSP will show his support for the people of Haiti in the Scottish Parliament tomorrow by wearing red.

Mr Gibson will be joining MSPs from across the chamber as part of RedDay4Haiti.

Mr Gibson will be wearing his Buchanan tartan tie.

He said...

"The devastation wrought on the Islanders of Haiti cannot have failed to move people. So to show solidarity and raise funds for the islands is still needed."

"I chose a tartan tie as tartan emphasises all the strands in the weave that are needed to help Haiti."

"The official RedDay4Haiti is in fact on Friday but as we will all be in our own constituencies on that day, MSPs will be wearing red in the chamber on Thursday and I know many Parliamentary staff will be doing the same throughout the building."

"This is an extremely good cause and I hope that as many people as possible will join in and wear something red on Friday, whether to school or work and whatever, and raise some money for Haiti."

Notes:

RedDay4Haiti is an awareness and fundraising day being organised by the Scotland 4 Haiti Partnership on Friday 5 February 2010.

The partnership is between the Caring City (a national charity with branches in Glasgow, Dundee and Inverclyde) and World Emergency Relief.
