Shine a Light

We’re pleased to be joining with Nerve Tumours UK to support and raise awareness Neurofibromatosis (NF) which is one of is one of the most common neuro-genetic conditions, causing tumours to grow on nerve endings.

NF has many associated medical, physical and psychological conditions and 60% of those affected have learning disabilities and up to 75% are registered as disabled.

People with NF live in constant pain, can be vulnerable and are often isolated.

To show support to those affected including their families and carers we’ll be lighting up the Guildhall blue on the evening of the 17 May and we’ll be joined by over 200 other locations across the UK and Ireland who will be doing the same.

The event also marks 40 years of Nerve Tumours UK who are the leading voice and support network for people living with Neurofibromatosis.
