The Westbury community has raised more than $10,000 for Cancer Council Tasmania and last week their funds helped run a community forum. 

What started as a personal project to raise $1000 quickly grew into a community effort for Gay Hall and the newly-formed Purple for Prostate group.

The forum was about urging men to get their prostates checked and about 90 people attended.

Now the group hope to host event annually.
