North Devon is urged to turn purple for World Cancer Day today (Thursday).

Get ready to paint North Devon purple for World Cancer Day today (Thursday).

The organisers of this year’s Relay for Life event in Braunton are hoping their purple campaign will kick off fundraising.

They are urging schools and businesses to wear something mauve or maroon and raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Relay for Life North Devon returns to Barnstaple Rugby Club on the Saturday and Sunday of July 23-24.

Wear purple tomorrow and text RLND50 £1 to 70070 to donate.
