Cynthia Dwyer, of Clare Close, lost her husband Hugh to Prostate Cancer in 2010.

It was one of his final wishes to have a support group set up to help others in his situation.

Mrs Dwyer and her friends Norma Julius and Natasha Broomfield-Reid set up the Hugh Dwyer Inspirational Foundation in 2011 and in the last year they have held two awareness seminars to make more people aware of the effects of prostate cancer.

They have also put on a family fun day and fundraising football match and organised a coach trip to Weymouth.

In February, Mrs Dwyer was invited to the House of Commons to speak in front of dignitaries as part of the launch of the Hear Me Now report written by BME Cancer Communities’ director Rose Thompson, which covers ‘the uncomfortable reality of prostate cancer in Black African and Caribbean men’ .

Mrs Dwyer and her friends have organised the first Sparkles and Bows dinner and dance in aid of their foundation.

The event will take place at the Ramada Warwick Hotel, at Chesford Bridge, near Kenilworth on Saturday November 30.

All of the money raised will help the foundation to move forward with the work is has started.
