Stewartry actor Sam Heughan this week launched Tartan Tuesday to raise money for the Bloodwise cancer charity.

The Outlander star is urging people to wear tartan attire every Tuesday for a month.

Sam, who plays Jamie Fraser in the hit US television show , launched the project by wearing a bright red tartan scarf.

And he is encouraging people to use #TartanTuesday, @bloodwise_uk and @AmazonVideoUK when tweeting pictures of themselves supporting the initiative.

The New Galloway-born actor said : “It’s really important to raise awareness as blood cancer is the fifth most common cancer and affects people of all ages.

“I hope people enjoy a month of Tartan Tuesday, have fun with it, and that we raise as much money and awareness as possible. I look forward to seeing everyone’s pictures on Twitter!”

Sam has supported Bloodwise for several years and recently promoted a fundraising-fitness initiative, My Peak Challenge , which has boosted contributions to the charity by nearly £200,000 since its inception in 2015.

The charity’s chief executive Cathy Gilman said: “Sam’s dedication to Bloodwise over the years has been absolutely fantastic and we are proud that he has once again chosen to support our charity by fronting #TartanTuesday.”

To donate £3 to Bloodwise, simply text TTBW54 £3 to 70070 or visit JustGiving at: www.justgiving.com/Tartan-Tuesday .

Funds raised will be invested in clinical trials and research into new treatments for blood cancers such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Tartan Tuesday runs until until May 10. [Source]
