Supporters dug deep at The Murrell Arms' charity bash

The charity said: "If you’re over 50, or you’re black, or your dad or brother had it, you’re at even higher risk. We unite the brightest minds in science and healthcare and the most passionate and caring people to help men live long and live well. Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening but when it is, the earlier you catch it the more likely it is to be cured."
