A Norwich man is organising a five a side tournament to support Prostate Cancer UK after his grandfather died of the disease.
Steven Turner, 41 from Norwich, along with friends and business customers, are hoping to raise over £3,000 from the free all-day event, that will also provide food, drink and plenty of fundraising activities, to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
Mr Turner was inspired after his grandfather passed away from prostate cancer in October 2018.
Steven said: “I wasn’t aware of prostate cancer before my grandad was diagnosed and the news came as a real shock. I now want to do what I can to make other people aware of this disease, that 1 in 8 men will get at some point in their lifetime.
“Several of the team members involved in the event are from local garages, some of whom have never kicked a ball.”
The event will be on Sunday 26th May at the FDC Clover Hill in Bowthorpe, Norwich. Email email@example.com to get involved.
