Help Us Fight Prostate Cancer
Fundraising for the Prostate Project
We’re delighted that you are interested in becoming involved and wanting to support us, either by fundraising, participating in events or raising awareness of prostate cancer. Your amazing efforts really will help us to make sure that men are given a better chance of beating cancer. There are all sorts of events available for you to participate in – take a look at our events to find out details of how to join in or to get some inspiration. There are physical challenges like runs, golf days and cycle races, or social events such as concerts and open gardens. You may want to do your own thing to raise money for us, be it climbing in a bath of beans, holding a quiz night or climbing Everest!
Do get in touch with us if you have any questions or if we can help you in any way. Any funds you raise will help us to support the ground breaking research being undertaken by our team at the University of Surrey and help us to provide equipment, specialist nursing staff and an active support group. We rely on fundraisers for 99% of our support so you really are very important. We pride ourselves in being run largely by volunteers and keeping our admin costs below 5%.
If you are planning to organise a fundraising event and are looking for inspiration, have a look at the list of some of the previous fundraisers people have organised for the Prostate Project:
“In any theatre of war, it is vital to understand your enemy – their strengths, their weaknesses and their behaviour. The same disciplines are needed to effectively fight cancer. I urge you to support the Prostate Project’s battle with this insidious disease that claims so many men’s lives.”
“Being able to talk to men with prostate cancer who had taken the decisions I was faced with, was a huge benefit for me and my family.”
“My partner gets a great boost from being with other “sufferers” and being able to chat to them and swapping experiences gives him confidence. You’re doing a marvellous job and we’re so thankful to be part of your group.”
“The Prostate Project has done a huge amount to improve the care of men with prostate cancer and I thank them for their continuing efforts.”
“My involvement with the PP Support Group enables me to keep up to date and ensure I give others the correct advice. There is help in abundance for prostate cancer patients – don’t die of ignorance.”
We collaborate with local and national businesses, the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Frimley Park Hospital and University of Surrey to give every man a better chance of beating prostate cancer.
