It was fate for Anne

Rutherglen Reformer - - Info.. Info..Info -

Anne Irvine, 50, from Kin­ning Park, Glas­gow, has worked as an ex­tra for over 25 years and fea­tures as a house­wife in the new‘bowel move­ment’ ad­vert. Her in­volve­ment in the cam­paign came at an op­por­tune time, as it ac­tu­ally spurred her on to send away her test.

She said:“The bowel screen­ing test dropped through my let­ter box on my 50th birth­day.

“I put it in a drawer and have to ad­mit I for­got all about it un­til my agency got in touch with this op­por­tu­nity.

“That prompted me to go and find the test and I took it straight away.

“I’m just wait­ing on the re­sults but I sup­pose you could say the ad has al­ready en­cour­aged one per­son to com­plete the test be­fore it has even been screened. Now I’ve done it, it’s some­thing I will def­i­nitely do it again.”
