A Bedale firm which makes sausages is producing special packs of them - to raise awareness of prostate cancer on Father's Day.  

  • Heck Sausages in Bedale are making 10,000 packs of special Father's Day sausages.
  • It's to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
  • The firm is donating 10p from sales of each pack - as well as giving a £5,000 donation to the charity.  

Heck Sausages are producing 10,000 packs of special Father's Day sausages.

The packs carry the word 'Dad' and the Prostate Cancer UK logo.

They're donating 10p from sales of each pack to the charity  - as well as giving a £5,000 donation to the charity.  

Jamie Keeble, from Heck, says the firm was inspired to do it after his grandfather died from the disease.

Jamie said: 

"We're linking up with Prostate Cancer UK and we're trying to raise awareness by donating 10p from every pack we sell in all our UK stories, which will go straight to Prostate Cancer.

"If you catch anything early enough, you can make a full recovery.  That's the message really - for men getting to an age where they should be getting checked, to get checked - that's the message here."
