As a result of Jackie Dijon of JPS Promotions contacting our colleagues in the North West, the tribute acts of Chris Perry (Phil Collins) and Andy Lee (Simply Red) volunteered for a PSA test at Delamere Golf Club. See their video explaining why they're supporting Tackle.

Along with two of the crew, and courtesy of Leighton Hospital Support Group, the guys were keen to show their personal support for Tackle and for all that our groups are doing.

Read about the UK tour "An Evening with Phil Collins and Simply Red with Chris Perry and Andy Lee" -  tribute acts in aid of prostate cancer this year and next year.
