The Romsey Abbey clock tower will be illuminated green from 15th – 21st September 2019 as part of Light Up for Mito to raise awareness for mitochondrial disease (mito).

Mitochondrial disease (mito) is a debilitating genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction, failure and potentially death. It can cause any symptom, in any organ, at any age. Although 1 in 200 people may carry the genetic changes that could lead to mito, few have heard of it. That’s why we are supporting Light Up for Mito.

The Lily Foundation is committed to finding a cure for Mitochondrial Disease through funding research, raising awareness and family support.
