Malvern Editorial 5th Feb, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

LEDBURY’S MP has pledged support to Men United campaign for Prostate Cancer UK.

The nationwide television drive aims to ‘keep friendships alive’ by encouraging men to see their friends more and do something great to help beat prostate cancer.

Bill Wiggin, who attended the campaign’s launch in Parliament last week, said one in eight men in the UK were diagnosed with prostate cancer.

He added you never knew when you might need a friend to lean on or when someone close to you may need your support.

“Investing in our friendships and being there for our mates is so important and I am wholeheartedly behind this campaign,” Mr Wiggin said.

Owen Sharp, Prostate Cancer UK’s chief executive, said in the last year more than 200,000 people had signed a pledge supporting the drive.

“Whether it’s big or small, signing a petition or running a marathon, doing it together is what really matters,” he added.
