Laura Boyd has taken on a new role with Cancer Support Scotland, having benefited from the organisation's services in the past

Television presenter Laura Boyd has become an ambassador for the national cancer charity, Cancer Support Scotland.

As someone who has previously benefited from the charity’s cancer support services, Cancer Support Scotland is very close to the STV star’s heart.

Her recent news of becoming a mother in December has been welcomed across the nation and has given hope to many families who have cancer.

Boyd said: “I am delighted to be an ambassador for Cancer Support Scotland. It’s a charity I have both used and worked with over the years and I know the services they offer mean so much to so many people – me included. It’s nice to be part of something that can help change lives and I look forward to lending my support going forward.”

The charity’s chief executive Rob Murray said: “I’m confident Laura representing our charity and speaking about her experiences will play a positive role in letting young women know of the benefit counselling and complementary therapy can have to those affected by cancer.

“While huge advances have been made in treatment, the sad reality is that for many families, cancer is a disease that will play a major part in the life of their family. We must ensure adequate levels of investment and awareness are being provided to grassroots counselling services.”
