Purple Lights for pancreatic cancer

One way you can prepare for awareness month is to visit www.purplelightsuk.org and try to organise a light-up of your own.

This can be a local landmark, a building in your village or even your home. Lighting up a building purple is a fantastic way to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer as well as celebrate the lives of loved ones affected by the disease. Don’t forget to upload picture to www.purplelightsuk.org once your light up is up and running!

Fundraising events

From bake sales and craft stalls, to park runs and swim-a-thons there are lots of ways you can fundraise this November. For more inspiration and advice on how to get started, click here.

Awareness Stands

We have lots of awareness materials to help you run a successful awareness stand during awareness month. Whether you decide to hold a stand at your local supermarket, at your local school or even down the high street, we have materials for every occasion. Click here to find out more

Share our key information on your social media

A super easy way to show your support and get involved this November is to share our key information across your social media. You could share facts and statistics, patient information, recipes, or even information about diagnosis and treatment. You could also encourage your followers to like and share the information to their timelines as well to increase awareness amongst your online community.
