Mancroft Lodge raises funds for prostate cancer research
Local Freemasons from Mancroft Lodge in Norwich, have raised £1,200 for prostate cancer research at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).
Christopher Utting, who was Master of the Lodge for the past year, decided to support the hospital charity fund for prostate cancer research after a close friend of his was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The £1,200 was raised through various social events that members of the Lodge and their families held throughout the year.
Mr Utting said, We have a great local hospital and I wanted to support their work into prostate cancer research.
Mr Robert Mills who leads prostate cancer research at the NNUH said: We are extremely grateful to the Mancroft Lodge for this donation which will help further our research into causes, investigation and treatment for prostate cancer.
Louise Cook, fundraising manager, said: We are absolutely delighted that Mr Utting and the Mancroft Lodge decided to raise money to support research into prostate cancer. Over 112 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day.
