Steve Prescott Bridge to Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Steve Prescott Bridge will be dressed pretty in pink this month (October) as part of a breast cancer awareness campaign.

Following a request from the NHS, St Helens Council has programmed the bridge to shine pink on Monday 1 October, Saturday 20 October, Sunday 21 October, and Wednesday 31 October, to support breast cancer charities, Breast Cancer Now’s ‘Wear it Pink’ campaign – and Whiston & St Helens Hospitals’ month of fundraising to provide breast cancer patients with a free surgical bra and drain bag following surgery.

Breast cancer survivor, Julie Lynan, a Patient Advice & Liaison Officer for STHK said: “Following my wonderful treatment, I wanted to say a huge thank you for the care and support I received on my journey. I have been fundraising for a few years now trying to turn St Helens and Whiston hospitals pink each October and have raised around £20,000 so far.

“To have the Steve Prescott Bridge lit pink on several occasions throughout October is a great honour as it literally shines a light on the fantastic work that is being done in our hospitals to support breast cancer patients and their families.”
