Brompton Bikes put One-of-a-kind Purple Bike up for auction on World Pancreatic Cancer Day

20 November 2020

To mark World Pancreatic Cancer Day, Brompton Bicycles are auctioning a one-of-a-kind S6L Brompton Bike, to raise vital funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK.

We are delighted to have Brompton Bicycles’ support during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. This year, raising awareness of the disease and urging people with persistent symptoms to go to their GP, is more important than ever.

The auction launches on World Pancreatic Cancer Day (19th November) and Brompton-fans will have until Sunday 29th November to put in their bids. All of the money raised help the charity support people affected by the disease now, fund vital research and campaign for change.

You can put in your bid and follow the auction.

Brompton Bicycles are a strong supporter of the charity. During the first national lockdown, when big fundraising events like the London Marathon were cancelled, Brompton held a competition to see who could fold and unfold their bike under 26 seconds.

Diana Jupp, CEO of Pancreatic Cancer UK, said:

“We’re absolutely delighted that Brompton have so generously put this limited edition bike up for auction for World Pancreatic Cancer Day. It not only looks fantastic, but is also a unique way of bringing purple, the colour for pancreatic cancer, to the streets of the UK to raise awareness. We can’t thank Brompton enough for their continuing support in taking on the deadliest common cancer.

“Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease that touches thousands of lives across the UK. Unlike with other cancers, there has been an appalling lack progress – survival for this devastating disease has barely improved in 50 years. I  really hope Brompton fans love the bike as much as we do.  The money raised from the auction will help us be here for people who need support from our specialist nurses today, and will help us continue the cutting-edge research needed to transform survival now and in the future.”
