Early diagnosis is the only chance of survival - at the moment there is less than five per cent survival rate for newly diagnosed patients, with a staggering 95% dying within weeks of diagnosis.

The fun activities will start at around 6.30pm and these include a sponsored men's leg wax, with the pub hoping for some hairy blokes to take part - as well an attempt at the latest craze, the mannequin challenge.

There will be a signed Doncaster Rovers shirt up for auction, a bake sale, quiz, raffle and live music.

Pancreatic cancer is the fifth biggest cancer killer - only five per cent of patients survive and it has the worst survival rate of all 22 common cancers.
