Prostate Cancer UK's top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer killing men. We’re investing millions to find better treatments and better tests that can spot fast-growing cancers early, and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives.

Alex was just 34 years old when he died of Bowel Cancer leaving behind a distraught wife, 2 young sons and a loving family. Alex’s wife Roz and 3 close friends are committed to raising awareness of bowel cancer in young people and will be embarking on a relay swim across the English Channel in Summer 2021.
They have set themselves a target of raising £50,000 that will be split evenly between two charities that are close to Roz's heart:
Bowel Cancer UK- the leading bowel cancer charity, they are running a number of campaigns including their Never Too Young Campaign
Team Verrico - a small, wonderful charity who came to Roz’s rescue after she was diagnosed with breast cancer a week after losing Alex. Roz underwent 9 months of treatment to include lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy all while struggling with grief and she owes so much thanks to this wonderful charity for their help and support. They are a no-salary charity kept afloat solely through donations. They provide funding for research, counselling, practical help like childcare and transport and second opinions following a cancer diagnosis.
They need your help to spread the word and help them achieve their goal
Please contact us to donate and help Roz to meet her goal
