Can you help shine a light on cancer?

Last year's Shine Night Walk (Credit: Cancer Research UK)Listeners to Radio Clatterbridge are being encouraged to take part in a night walk to help raise funds for cancer studies.

The second Shine Night Walk is taking place in Liverpool at the end of August following the success of last year's inaugural event.

Siobhan Byrne, from the Cancer Research UK events team, came into the studio to talk about the fundraiser which also aims to remember lost loved ones and those who have been affected by cancer.

She told Coffee Club presenter Steve Evans how people often dress up in neon, deeley boppers and even fairy lights along the way.

“It’s just a good way to raise money, have fun and have a good night out.” - Siobhan Byrne

Cancer Research UK is the biggest cancer charity in the world and this year they are hoping to beat the £66,000 raised at last year's event.
