My dad is a survivor of Prostate Cancer…
Since his recovery, Guy Woodford has been an advocate of raising money for this Prostate Cancer charity, determined to help win the fight against the disease that affects 1 in 8 men…
In 2013, he received an MBE for his service to both the community and charity fundraising! From my most recent check, Guy has raised an incredible £250,000!
Digital Recruiters Doing Their Bit…
As a business, we’re continually looking for opportunities to help our local community and raise money for charity. That’s why, when we discovered a pile of old, unused laptops during an office cupboard clear out, my first thought was ‘donate, donate, donate!’ Because they were too old to give to a school or local charity, we decided to recycle the laptops using cashinyourgadgets.co.uk. clockworkTalent received a respectable £123 for the computers, which will be added to the Woodford family JustGiving Page!
Each year I join nearly 100 of Guy’s friends at one of many Prostate Cancer fundraisers he organises. This next one is an annual lunch at the Oriental Club in London, an appropriate venue for this former corporate banker who had an extensive overseas career with Standard Chartered Bank.
With the statistic of 1 in 8 men being affected by this disease, it is not surprising how generous people have been with their donations and support. It’s said that incidence rates for prostate cancer are predicted to rise by 12% in the UK between 2014 and 2035. Despite being a deadly disease, if caught early, prostate cancer is treatable.
It’s worth noting the first test to check if you’ve prostate cancer is NOT any of the horror stories of embarrassing and intrusive examinations but merely a simple blood test, known as a PSA test. If you are male, 40+ and there is a history of prostate cancer in the family it’s worth requesting this test from your GP.
