Prostate Cancer UK

 

Our charity partner

We've been working in partnership with Prostate Cancer UK since 2010,  and in 2015 celebrated reaching the £1m fundraising milestone – an extraordinary achievement. Since then a further £250,000 has been raised, which goes straight into funding new research, and to support their Specialist Nurses support line.

 

The partnership combines employee fundraising and donations from staff, customers and suppliers.   Successful fundraising events have included charity nights, golf days, branch to branch cycle rides, and sporting challenges.

 

Keyline’s annual flagship event is a charity car rally to different destinations across Europe and features Keyline staff and customers, as well as Prostate Cancer UK staff, all in themed fancy dress. The rally aims to raise £100,000 each year and since 2010 has raised nearly £1m alone. 

 
Keyline, in partnership with PCUK, are dedicated to raising awareness of prostate cancer amongst its staff and customers, and raise funds for the Charity through a combination of cause-related marketing and employee fundraising. 
 

Key Facts

  • More than 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year – that's one man every 45 minutes.
  • It’s the most common cancer in men, with over 330,000 living with and after the disease in the UK.
  • Prostate cancer is set to become the most commonly diagnosed cancer of all in the UK by 2030 - which is why we must all act now to curb its power to kill.
  • Men over 50, black men and men with a family history of prostate cancer all face a higher than average risk of the disease.
  • Prostate cancer treatment often causes devastating, long term side-effects.  Incontinence and erectile dysfunction strike at the heart of what it means to be a man.

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer.

 

As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise (it’s set to become the most common of all cancers by 2030), now is the time to take control. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support, we will stop prostate cancer being a killer. 

Ignoring prostate cancer won’t beat it, so join the fight.
