Argyle help promote prostate cancer awareness
PLYMOUTH Argyle have teamed up with The Chestnut Appeal to help promote their vital work in raising awareness of prostate cancer across the South West.
The club have pledged support to the Derriford Hospital-based charity as the Football League have formed a partnership with Prostate Cancer UK.
Chestnut Appeal manager Lesley-Ann Simpson joined Argyle owner and chairman James Brent for an official pitch-side launch of the partnership during half-time of the Pilgrims' game against Port Vale at Home Park.
Simpson said: "I would like to thank both Plymouth Argyle and The Football League for supporting prostate cancer awareness and helping us as The Chestnut Appeal to spread our message about this disease to as wide an audience as possible."

Prostate cancer kills more than 10,000 men in the United Kingdom every year.
Argyle's acting chief executive, Martin Baker, said: "We are proud to be playing our part in the Football League's new partnership with Prostate Cancer UK.
"We look forward to working closely with both organisations to make the year ahead a season saving men's lives."
Simpson added: "With 36,000 new prostate cancer cases in the UK every year, we need to do everything we can to keep the appeal in the public spotlight.
"Teaming up with Plymouth Argyle will be a tremendous opportunity to reach even more people."
Raising awareness of prostate cancer is at the heart of The Chestnut Appeal, but it also helps fund the very latest treatments and technology, which make such a difference to the lives of sufferers.
