Town Hall turns purple for cancer awareness
Rugby Borough Council lights up its offices in purple this evening (Thursday) in support of World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
The purple lights will shine on the front of the Town Hall from 4pm to 8pm to encourage residents to find out more about pancreatic cancer and how to spot the signs of the disease.
Adam Norburn, executive director of Rugby Borough Council, said: "We are pleased to help raise awareness for World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
"The symptoms of pancreatic cancer are easily missed, so we hope that more awareness will help residents get an earlier diagnosis and better treatment options.
"Like a lot of organisations, many of our staff and councillors have been affected by cancer and, when we were asked to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer, we were keen to see what we could do to help."
Symptoms of pancreatic cancer can include stomach and back pain, weight loss, digestive problems and loss of appetite.
