On the 5th of May 2017 from 10:00 am until 5 pm people are being urged to get involved and donate their empty pop and beer cans to be crushed in the Scrapman’s crushing machine at Time Bar on Front Street Consett; all proceeds from the event will go to the Orchid Cancer Charity.

Orchid exists to save men’s lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers through pioneering research and promoting awareness.

So please start saving your empty cans and bring them along to the event and we can all help crush testicular cancer together.
