Pyjamas for PanCan

Join us on 16th April for Pyjamas for PanCan day!

Wear your Pyjamas to work or school on the 16th April and help us say goodnight to pancreatic cancer; the cancer that has been kept in the dark for too long.

With your help in raising funds and awareness we can make sure that more patients are diagnosed at an early stage so that they have the best chance of survival.

Nearly 10,000 people are diagnosed each year with pancreatic cancer and shockingly, the low survival rate has barely changed in over 50 years. Pancreatic Cancer Action are focused on improving early diagnosis for patients and we are on a mission to stamp out late detection!

How can I take part?

We have put together lots of resources to make sure that your event runs as smoothly as possibly and to help you really maximise your fundraising!
