'When it comes to health, women remain pivotal in encouraging men to be self-aware,' said Hannah Crabtree, Communications Manager at the Everyman Campaign. 'Cosmopolitan's Naked Centrefolds have consistently proven to be a fun and effective way of raising awareness of a very serious issue. Through its Centrefolds activity, Cosmopolitan has helped raise vital funds for the 37,000 men a year diagnosed with male cancer.'

The Everyman Campaign is run by The Institute of Cancer Research to raise awareness of, and funds for research into, male cancer at the Everyman Centre - Europe's first and only centre dedicated to male cancer research.

I wonder why worbo? It has been done in a good cause though so well done to those that have taken part. Cancer awareness has been high profile at Lincoln since it was announced that Peter Jackson had throat cancer, and it is good to see players backing such a cause.
