THIS Wednesday, The Steve Prescott Bridge will be lit up green in memory of nine-year-old cancer fighter Alex Prescott who died last year.

Alex, from Parr, died on Tuesday, June 12 2018 at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital after a long and courageous battle with leukaemia that he has been fighting since 2015.

St Helens Star:

His bravery led to him winning the Pride of St Helens Child of Courage award in 2017 (see above)

To mark a year since his death, his parents Michelle and James got in contact in St Helens Council who agreed to light up the bridge green – Alex's favourite colour.
