Wills Building goes pink

Wills Memorial ‘wears it pink’ for national breast cancer awareness campaign

One of Bristol’s most iconic landmarks received a makeover yesterday evening in support of a nationwide fundraising campaign.

Glowing: The pink Wills building in the early evening

The Wills Memorial Building was bathed in pink light last night in preparation for Breast Cancer Campaign‘s major ‘wear it pink’ event tomorrow.

As the clocks struck half 6, a number of building across the UK glowed pink to raise awareness of breast cancer, and show support for the ongoing research into the illness.

Vibrant: The iconic landmark changed colour for charity

Over a whopping £2.1million is raised every year to help fund crucial research into breast cancer at universities nationwide.

Claims the building, the symbolic centrepiece of the University of Bristol at the top of Park Street, looked like a giant phallus when lit up in pink, have yet to be dismissed by university officials.
