STAFF at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary are appealing for local people to help them support prostate cancer sufferers.
Workers on the urology ward at the hospital will hold a five-a-side football tournament to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer.
The tournament at Royds Hall Sports Hall - starting at 6pm on March 20 - will help raise awareness of the disease. It follows Prostate Cancer Awareness Week, starting on March 9.
Urology staff want companies in Calderdale and Huddersfield to help by sponsoring teams for the event.
More than 30 teams have applied to take part.
Elaine Stringer, urology ward sister said it was vital to raise awareness of prostate cancer, which hits 30,000 men a year. Around 10,000 of those die.
She said: "Many people do not realise that prostate cancer is the most common male cancer in the UK."
Anyone wishing to take part in the tournament can contact Claire Alletson or Lindsay Kendall on 01484 355293.
As well as the football tournament, there will be an awareness event outside Boots in Huddersfield on March 21.
And there will also be a ball at Huddersfield's Greenhead Mason- ic Lodge on March 24, including a three-course meal, piano music, opera singing and Motown disco. Tickets cost £35 from Alex Henderson on 01484 355262.
