Glasgow Pollock Country Park was abuzz as hundreds flocked to take part in the first ever Prostate Cancer UK March for Men family fundraising event.

Taking place ahead of Father’s Day the event raised vital funds to help beat prostate cancer – a disease which kills one man every hour.Supporters young and old took part from across the area to walk a choice of distances, many with a personal connection to the disease.

Marlene Graham, (35), from Larkhall took part in the event with her family, as her father sadly died from prostate cancer in 2005.

She said: “I am so pleased with the amount of people who came to show their support today. Everyone had a lot of fun with their family and friends and more importantly, they raised vital funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.”

Angela Culhane, chief executive at Prostate Cancer UK, added: “I am over the moon with the success of our March for Men event in Glasgow this Father’s Day weekend. Everyone really made an effort to come together and fight against this deadly disease.”
