Turn It Purple for Pancreatic Cancer 2016
Our turn it purple campaign 2015 was a huge success with over 50 venues lighting up purple, workplaces and people turning purple, 17,000 twibbons were downloaded, 200,000 views of our Friday 13th video and TV coverage on BBC Breakfast, Channel 4 and Sky News!
We want 2016 to be another huge success!
The turn it purple campaign calls for businesses and individuals to highlight the fifth deadliest cancer in the UK by embracing purple – the symbolic colour for pancreatic cancer – by shining purple lights on buildings or other structures in their community, wearing purple and spreading awareness for supporters to wear something purple at the office, at home or at school and to donate to fund life-saving research.
Would you like to get involved in Turn it Purple 2016?
By turning the UK purple in November 2016, Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, it will help generate discussion and awareness of pancreatic cancer, which we know can directly impact awareness of symptoms and boost GP visits.
We need your help to turn the UK purple during the month of November. It would be great to see numerous landmarks, shops, workplaces, schools, universities and other places turn purple to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.
Hosting a stand in your local supermarket, fete or community group is a great way to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer through awareness month. We can provide you with all the materials and merchandise you need so please do get in touch with us or find out more on our Hold A Collection page.
Here’s how to get involved!
