Arena to glow Gold for Grace in September

Aaron Wise 29th Aug, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

A GOLDEN glow will illuminate a city landmark throughout September to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

The University of Worcester Arena will be one of a number of iconic venues across the UK to ‘Glow Gold’ in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The University has been working closely with Jennifer Kelly, whose daughter Grace died from the disease aged just four in 2014.

Mrs Kelly set-up the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust in her memory and to support the charity, the arena will have a collection box for childhood cancer throughout September.

Anne Hannaford, director of arts and culture at the University, said: “We heard about Jennifer’s aim to get buildings glowing gold and were delighted to support such an important campaign by lighting the arena.”
