Wear It Purple
Raise awareness and funds by wearing purple!
Wear it Purple is a great way to get everyone involved in a fun-filled fundraising event!
An easy way to fundraise – it only requires one person to bring in a minimum of £1 donation to their wear purple day.
Wear something purple for a non-uniform day at school, by arranging one of your weekly club meetings to wear something purple or even a wear it purple day at work.
This is a great way to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and see who can wear the most purple or get creative with purple accessories!
In your pack, you will find a PCA Aware bear to colour in. An official PCA Aware bear up for grabs for the best design! Use our PCA purple quiz enclosed to test everyone’s knowledge. The winner will receive a PCA pin badge!
With your help, we fund research into improving early diagnosis, create award-winning awareness campaigns, provide educational resources for primary care professionals and provide information for patients and clinicians.
This Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve also launched our #MISSED campaign.
It’s for all those whose symptoms were missed and for their families and friends who miss them.
Are you missing a loved one who has died from pancreatic cancer? Join our #MISSED campaign and share their photo and story on your social media channels to help us raise awareness. Don’t forget to use #MISSED and please tag us in your post.
