Lighting the Tower Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month



Monday 3 September - Friday 28 September



September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month – Thank you Gloucester Cathedral for Glowing Gold for Childhood Cancer



Understandably, childhood cancer is something that most parents do not want to think about. Thankfully, it is uncommon, but not as rare as you may think. One in every 285 children gets cancer before the age of 20, and it is also the most common medical cause of death in children and young people in the UK.



Grace left a legacy – a wish to help others. Something that we are working to fulfil via the formation of the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust – working to improve childhood cancer awareness and funding for research. As one of the founder members of the Glow Gold Campaign, it was established to raise awareness of childhood cancer during September through gold illumination of iconic buildings throughout the UK and the world.
