TUGGING teams are wanted today to take part in a charity event to raise cash for research into prostate cancer.
The Suffolk Food Hall is holding a tug-of-war competition on Sunday, June 15, to mark Father's Day. All proceeds from the event will go to the Prostate Cancer Charity.
Oliver Paul, of the Wherstead-based food hall, said: “We're hoping football and rugby teams will register and some pub teams too.
“It should be a fun event but also help raise awareness about a vital campaign.
“Prostate cancer often makes men cringe and they don't face up to the reality of it.”
Teams of eight can register for the event now, which costs £10 a team, with all profits going to the charity.
