Denbighshire Leisure is lighting buildings in purple in support of National Pancreatic Awareness month.

Rhyl Sky Tower, Rhyl Pavilion Theatre, 1891 Restaurant and Bar and the Events Arena waterfall will all be lit up in purple on Monday 28th November, to support the national awareness raising campaign for the disease.

Pancreatic cancer can be difficult to diagnose early and reports have shown that 80% of pancreatic cancer patients are not diagnosed until the cancer is at an advanced stage.  Each year, November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month, when people are encouraged to raise the profile of this deadly disease and also join in fundraising events to support potential research breakthroughs.

Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd said “National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month aims to improve early diagnosis of the disease by ensuring more people know the symptoms to look out for.  Statistics have shown that only 8% of people can name the common symptoms, yet 1300 people are diagnosed globally every day.  Denbighshire Leisure Ltd are proud to support the campaign by lighting buildings in purple.”
