Mr Edwards, from Deal, said: “We have raised more than £300,000 to pay for the equipment with help from Masonic Lodges, Rotary and Lions clubs.

“We’re here to support men with prostate cancer and their families and to raise awareness.

“By raising the profile and providing the equipment, we will have saved lives and continue to do so.”
