“This year’s fund-raising events will be promoted under our new slogan ‘The Walnut Prostate Cancer Campaign’. We will no longer be using ‘The Movember Campaign’. Therefore, we encourage the public to support this campaign in aid of prostate cancer locally. Prostate Cancer Gibraltar will continue to raise funds to increase awareness of this terrible disease to the local community, allocate funds to continue to improve the medical equipment for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer and patient care at the GHA and support patients and their families affected by this terrible illness. All the funds donated to our charity are solely used for this worthy cause locally’, said Prostate Cancer Gibraltar Chairman Derek Ghio.
