Prodigy and their charity for Myeloma UK
Prodigy band had collected a lot of funds for Myeloma UK by doing an online auction and gathering donations due to their UK tour. They had raised nearly £8,000 for the organization. The organization released a statement which read:
“Myeloma currently affects around 17,500 people in the UK each year, making it the third most common form of blood cancer. Whilst treatable, it is not yet curable and Myeloma UK is working to change that.
“The Prodigy have been supporters of Myeloma UK and their work for many years, through a personal connection of one of the band members.”
The Prodigy member Liam Howlett had said:
“It’s important for us to support Myeloma UK in any way we can.”
