Movember is worth supporting

If readers of The News want to give to Movember to raise funds for prostate cancer research, they can visit online:

As I saw that moustached photo jump off the page in The News of Nov. 22, my first thought was that Parksville’s press must be short of catchy news items and neat photos! But hey, face time can be very valuable!

Why? Because I strongly support the Movember project because my beloved friend, Alan Birchard, passed away on October 30 after battling prostate cancer and heart ailments.

I seek to raise some funding but it’s not mandatory by any stretch.

If readers of The News want to give to Movember to raise funds for prostate cancer research, they can visit online:

My funding ID number is 1200866.

It would be a real pleasure if readers could help me fund prostate cancer help for those who dearly need it.

Many thanks for anyone doing so!

John Roberts, Parksville
