Penshaw Monument to turn purple for pancreatic cancer awareness

Penshaw Monument is to be lit up in purple to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer month.

The landmark will be illuminated tomorrow as part of the purple lights campaign to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer.

The aim is to remember those who have sadly died of pancreatic cancer and draw more attention to an often forgotten disease.

Other landmarks around the world have taken part, including Blackpool Tower and Edinburgh Castle.

With a survival rate of just 5% in the UK, pancreatic cancer kills at least one person every hour.
