How to get involved


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 at events@prostate-project.org.uk 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%.
