Come and join us for the ‘Time of your Life’ on Friday 3rd November while we sit back and enjoy the classic film that is ‘Dirty Dancing’.

All proceeds go to the local fund Fight on for Annie which was set up in memory of Anne O’Neill in October 2014 and raises money for two UK Pancreatic Cancer Charities.

Fight on for Annie has raised over £45,000 and we want to continue raising funds and awareness of the disease locally to help with early detection.

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. We have decided to show Dirty Dancing because Patrick Swayze also lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2009 aged only 57. Dirty Dancing is 30 years old this year and this deserves to be celebrated and raise money for a great cause.

For further information please contact Gráinne O’Neill (Founder of Fight on for Annie) on 07754566157 or info@fightonforannie.com

The reality of pancreatic cancer:

Just 5% of patients survive – it has the worst survival rate of all 22 common cancers

Pancreatic cancer is the fifth biggest cancer killer

26 people diagnosed each day, 24 people will die each day.

It receives just over 3% of overall cancer research funding: a total of only £8 million in 2015

Statistics:

In 2014, 9614 people were newly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer

In 2014, 8,834 people died from pancreatic cancer in the UK
