Darts star Bobby George is stepping up to show his support for Prostate Cancer.

The colourful pundit and former professional has signed up to the Men United Arms campaign, which encourages pubs to raise awareness to help men beat the disease.

Bobby said: "It's great to be able to support such an exciting campaign. The pub is the hub of a community which is why it is so important that licensees start raising awareness among their locals, and funds for this cause. Plus, it is a great way to get customers at your bar."

Pubs are being encouraged to raise money for the cause between now and March 31 2018. All those who raise more than £200 will be entered into a competition to win branded drip trays and t-shirts.

The top five fundraisers will then be shortlisted to become Prostate Cancers' favourite local – with Bobby joining MasterChef's Greg Wallace and industry professionals on a judging panel.

The winners of Prostate Cancer UK's favourite local will receive free social media advertising, a cheque presentation, a framed personalised Prostate Cancer UK shirt and publicity within their local and trade media.
