Lynn’s Town Hall was illuminated purple yesterday evening to shine a light on a form of cancer.

The building was lit up to mark the World Pancreatic Cancer Day campaign.

This is organised by individuals affected by the disease, and is a way to remember loved ones lost to pancreatic cancer, to support those living with and beyond the disease, as well as to raise awareness during November’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

Purple Lights for pancreatic cancer is supported by UK based charities Pancreatic Cancer UK, Pancreatic Cancer Action, Planets and Guts UK.

The campaign involves the act of lighting purple focal points in villages, towns and cities all over the UK on World Pancreatic Cancer Day.


Almost 10,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year. Sadly, less than 7 per cent of those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive five years or more, and it’s the UK’s fifth biggest cancer killer.
