Glasgow Freemasons donate £50k to Pancreatic Cancer Action
Today is World Pancreatic Cancer Day and I wanted to get in touch with the attached press release about the Glasgow Freemasons donating an incredible £50,000 to Pancreatic Cancer Action.

Jim Peddie was the Provincial Grand Master during 2014 – 2019 and chose Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland (PCAS) to receive the funds.

Jim, who lives in Kirkintilloch, sadly lost his wife Frances to pancreatic cancer ten years ago this August at 64 years of age.

 This World Pancreatic Cancer Day we encourage you to help us to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly forms of cancer.

To celebrate our Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, the following locations in Scotland are lighting up purple on these dates:
West Dunbartonshire Council Offices - 18th November
Kings theatre, Edinburgh - 18th November
Camera Obscura, Edinburgh - 18th November
Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh - 18th November
Livingston Civic Centre, West Lothian - 18th - 30th November
Balmoral Clock Tower, Edinburgh - 18th November

When we first started our awareness month, the 5-year survival rates were just 3% - now, they're almost 8% - proving that awareness raising works!

If you'd like any more information, please let me know.

Kind regards,
