Go Blue for Meso is a national campaign to raise awareness of mesothelioma, an asbestos-related cancer, and the ongoing dangers of asbestos.

This year on Action Mesothelioma Day, Friday 7 July 2023, the ActionMeso Go Blue for Meso campaign is again encouraging homes and prominent landmarks to be lit blue to put a spotlight on mesothelioma.

In support of the campaign, Boyes Turner have arranged for Christchurch Bridge in Reading and Maidenhead’s Braywick Leisure Centre arch to be lit blue on 7 July. 

Throughout June and July, the large digiboard outside Reading Station has also been displaying the Go Blue for Meso campaign artwork.

The ActionMeso campaign aims to raise awareness and eradicate asbestos and asbestos-related disease.  Lighting up homes and prominent local buildings is a way to raise awareness of mesothelioma, to remember those who have died of the disease and to acknowledge those affected by asbestos-related disease.

The UK has the world’s highest incidence of mesothelioma with over 2,700 people per year being diagnosed with mesothelioma, often decades after exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is an entirely preventable cancer but, in the UK, asbestos is still prevalent in many public buildings. It is still in around 85% of schools and 90% of hospitals.

More people die from exposure to asbestos than die in road traffic accidents every year.

Boyes Turner will be supporting Action Mesothelioma Day 2023 by attending HASAG’s annual event in Portsmouth.
