Council illuminates Enniskillen Castle and Strule Arts Centre, Omagh on various dates in January 2023
23rd December 2022
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will illuminate Enniskillen Castle and Strule Arts Centre, Omagh on various dates throughout the month of January.
On Wednesday 11 January 2023, both buildings will be illuminated in green in recognition of Less Survivable Cancers Awareness Day at the request of OGCancer NI. There are six less survivable common cancers (lung, pancreatic, liver, brain, oesophageal and stomach) which are responsible for almost half of all cancer deaths and make up a quarter of cancer cases each year in the UK. This is just the second annual Less Survivable Cancers Awareness Day which aims to highlight the symptoms of such cancers and encourage people to see their GP if they have concerns.
Both buildings will be illuminated in purple on 12 January 2023 to raise awareness of the Dry January campaign which aims to highlight that it is possible to socialise without drinking alcohol. This is on behalf of Ascert, who’s aim is to prevent and reduce drug and alcohol related harm.
On Friday 27 January 2023, Enniskillen Castle and Strule Arts Centre, Omagh will be illuminated in purple in recognition of Holocaust Memorial Day and this year’s theme is ‘Ordinary People’. Holocaust Memorial Day was first held in January 2001 and is dedicated to the remembrance of the Jews, and others, who suffered in the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution.
