MAKE mauve merriment tomorrow (Friday) as we celebrate Big Purple Day!

The annual fundraising day for the Chemotherapy Appeal will see people across the region purpling up for the purpose of putting pennies in pots for the new £2.2million chemo unit.

Here at the North Devon Gazette offices in Old Station Road there’ll be tasty purple cakes on offer plus big purple candles for sale courtesy of Mandie’s Candles, with all proceeds going to the appeal.

Drop in and see us for a cake, candle or simply to make a donation.

Plenty of places are going purple potty this year and it is looking like this one will be the biggest and best yet – but you still have time to join in the fun.

Staff and volunteers at North Devon District Hospital will be going for it big time, with numerous departments dressing in purple (where clinical duties permit) plus there is a Big Purple Day raffle. Tickets are available in the foyer and there are hampers, teddy bears and a hand-crafted handbag as prizes.

North Devon Council staff at the Civic Centre, the Big Sheep, both Barnstaple McDonald’s restaurants, Parkside Barnstaple, Sainsburys, Tesco and many more will be getting involved.

Reporter Sarah Howells is currently compiling a list of places ‘purpling out’ so she can come and visit them with a camera tomorrow! Get in touch by emailing sarah.howells@archant.co.uk or tweet your Purple Day fun via #purpleday
