Queen Bess - one of our blast furnaces - lit up in purple to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.

Lighting up purple to put a spotlight on pancreatic cancer!

British Steel is supporting Pancreatic Cancer UK's 'Purple Lights' campaign for the second year in a row.

Throughout November we will be raising awareness for pancreatic cancer by illuminating our Queen Bess furnace purple! Pancreatic Cancer UK’s Purple Lights for Hope campaign aims to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer throughout November.

Sharon Smith, Occupational Health Manager said: “Less than 7% of people with pancreatic cancer survive beyond five years, the statistics are really staggering. It’s really important to get yourself checked out by your GP if you spot any of the signs.”
