Custom House Supports 'Shine A Light' Campaign


The iconic Custom House in Greenock has been lit in blue as part of its participation in the 'Shine a Light' campaign to celebrate World Neurofibromatosis Day. 

World Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day (17 May 2018) is the one day of the year when people across the globe come together to recognise and support those affected by Neurofibromatosis - a neuro-genetic condition which can cause tumours to grow on your nervous system which affects over 26,500 in the United Kingdom and to date no cure has been found.

As the leading UK charity working to provide support to those living with Neurofibromatosis, The Neuro Foundation’s is building support to raise awareness of the illness in preparation for the World Neurofibromatosis Day celebrations.

To pledge our support to help raise awareness, Riverside Inverclyde's Custom House will join other buildings including the neighbouring Beacon Arts Centre in the 'Shine a Light' campaign and will shine blue from 17-31 May 2018.
