THE Spinnaker Tower was lit up in a stunning purple glow for World Lymphoma Awareness Day.

Margo Berry, from the Lymphoma Association’s Portsmouth support group, said: ‘Although it’s the UK’s fifth most common cancer, most people only hear about lymphoma after they or someone close to them are diagnosed.

‘We want everyone to be aware of the symptoms of lymphoma – a painless lump or swelling often in the neck, armpit or groin, persistent itching, unusual tiredness and excessive sweating, especially at night.’

The group has raised £1,200 to support young lymphoma patients at Queen Alexandra Hospital.
