Royal Border Bridge at Berwick

A group of North East parents of children with cancer have teamed up with others from around the UK to try to make a difference and change the face of childhood cancer.

Without improved awareness and increased publicity, little will change in terms of early diagnosis, research, treatment or prognosis for youngsters.

Glow Gold September is a childhood cancer awareness campaign to get iconic buildings to illuminate in gold during September.

As part of this, the Royal Border Bridge at Berwick will be lit with Eyemouth youngster Lawson Dunn, who has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, doing the honours tonight.
