Speaking to HU17.net they said;
“Beverley man Sean Lang unfortunately was checked late, and has faced a battle being treated for the disease, a battle that he won. His fight with this disease is what has inspired this event.”
“Our goal of the evening is to emphasise the importance that men checking or having themselves checked for prostate cancer early as if detected soon enough in most cases Prostate Cancer can be treated”
“Live music on the night will be performed by Manchester husband and wife duo The Retrosettes, who as the full band have toured as support to the likes of Simply Red, and Leeds based troubadour Tony Lambert.”
“Throughout the evening advice will be given by Dr Justin Sturge, a cancer research scientist at the University of Hull.”
“We would like to thank all the local businesses who have been kind to support the special prize draw. We have some fantastic things to give away on the night to the winners.”
