Steve McCabe MP pledges support to Men United in the name of ‘Keeping Friendships Alive’

Steve McCabeMP has pledged his support to Prostate Cancer UK’s Men United campaign.

The new campaign aims to ‘keep friendships alive’ by encouraging men to see their friends more and do something great together to help beat prostate cancer. The campaign coincides with a recent YouGov survey of over 2,000 men, conducted on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK which revealed that 84% of men believe that spending time with their friends is good for their health and well-being.

More than 200,000 people have signed up to pledge support so far and men from all walks of life from footballers to lawyers and politicians to plumbers have formed a growing army to raise funds for better treatments.

Steve McCabe MP said;

“I am delighted to be supporting Prostate Cancer UK’s latest drive to encourage more men to join Men United in the name of men’s health and to ‘keep friendships alive’. Seeing our friends is good for our health and well-being and with 1 in 8 men in the UK facing a prostate cancer diagnosis, men never know when they might need a friend to lean on, or be there for a friend who’s received the bad news. Investing in friendships is so important and I am wholeheartedly behind this campaign.”

For ideas of how you can spend time with your mates and ‘Keep Friendships Alive’, people are being urged to search Men United, and sign up.
