Lancashire residents are being urged to join forces and Stand Up To Cancer.
A joint fund-raising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, Stand Up To Cancer aims to raise money to fund vital research.
By joining Stand Up To Cancer, supporters in the region will be uniting with doctors, nurses, scientists and celebrities to generate funds and raise awareness.
Stand Up To Cancer is launching now and will culminate in a live TV fund-raiser on Friday, October 17 on Channel 4.
A free fund-raising kit is available to help spark creative ideas and provide support tools at standuptocancer.org.uk.
Jane Bullock, Cancer Research UK North West spokesman said: “Stand Up To Cancer is our chance to make history and we hope everyone will join us.”
