Ely Cathedral’s Octagon Tower Turns Orange for World Alzheimer’s Day

Ely Cathedral will be lighting up the Octagon Tower in orange on Saturday evening the 21st September for Alzheimer’s Research UK, in aid of World Alzheimer’s Day.

Alzheimer’s Research UK’s ‘Share the Orange Campaign’ launched yesterday, with Samuel L. Jackson in support!

This campaign’s inspiring the public to think differently about dementia, while positioning the potential of research to make breakthroughs.

At its heart is a film, making the point that a brain damaged by Alzheimer’s – the leading cause of dementia – can weigh 140g less than a healthy one. That’s about the weight of an orange.
