These Are The Sheffield Landmarks That Will Be Turning Blue To Mark ME Awareness Week




By Stephanie Bateman in The Star.


Landmarks across Sheffield are set to turn blue this weekend.

On Saturday, March 11, the Peace Garden fountains will be turning blue alongside many different monuments such as York City walls, the fountain in Geneva, and nine landmarks across the Netherlands including the Rotterdam Bridge to represent ME Awareness week.

That evening the Big Wheel will light up blue, and on Sunday, March 12, Sheffield Cathedral is lighting its entrances blue.
ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) is an invisible illness but on Sunday ME sufferers, carers and friends will be making themselves seen and heard in Barker’s Pool, as part of the global campaign for ME health equality.
The day will see the lining up of ‘empty’ shoes and footwear of ME sufferers from across the region, footwear that has been unused and made redundant by this debilitating illness.
