Fundraising for Early Diagnosis

0 2 Permanent Link

From planning to light-up buildings purple to organising wear-it purple days and cake sales; our supporters have already embraced Turn it Purple and made it their own!

Turn it Purple is our flagship Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month fundraising for early diagnosis and awareness campaign which takes place every year in November! It is a chance for families, friends and communities to unite and show their support to those affected by pancreatic cancer and give the disease the attention it so desperately needs.

**Did you know that: “Pancreatic cancer receives less than 3% of government funding? Let’s change the statistics, together!

This year’s Turn it Purple is dedicated to funding research into early diagnosis and our goal is to raise £10,000 to help us continue supporting our researchers in their vital work and research in fighting back against the pancreatic cancer.

There are lots of ways you can take action with Turn it Purple this year and raise awareness of pancreatic cancer amongst your friends, family and community! Here are just a couple of ideas to get you inspired:

Light it Purple

Light-up your home or a local landmark purple this November

to raise awareness in your local community.

Wear it Purple

Whether you’re at work or school, wear purple to get people talking about pancreatic cancer and fundraise for early diagnosis! We recommend a Wear-it-Purple day either on 15th November – World Pancreatic Cancer Day but any day in November will work just as well! You could ask for a donation, we recommend £2 or £5.


Make it Purple

You could bake cakes and sell them at your school or office; or you could try your hand at something a bit more difficult. Visit www.panact.org/make-it-purple for more ideas.

Whichever way you decide to Turn it Purple this Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, we can’t wait to hear about it and support you every step of the way.
