This years Summer charity
ABOUT PROSTATE CANCER UK
The Prostate Cancer Charity was founded in 1996 by Professor Jonathan Waxman to address the 'Outrageous and arbitrary surgical treatment of men'.
We were the first national organisation for prostate cancer in the UK. Our aim was to improve the care and welfare of those affected by prostate cancer, increase investment in research, and raise public and political awareness of a long-neglected disease.
We started small: five members of staff and with our helpline housed in a small room in Hammersmith hospital. It ran one day a week.
We merged with Prostate Action in 2012 and completely rebranded to form Prostate Cancer UK. In the last 20 years, we’ve invested over £37 million into ground breaking research, and continue to provide award-winning support for men.
We have grown in size, strength and influence but our ambition is the same: to put men at the heart of everything we do.
PLAN FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS
In the last 20 years, we’ve invested over £37 million into ground breaking research. Bit by bit we’ve unearthed new discoveries. Inch by inch we’ve increased our knowledge, building on the advances of previous research, and laying foundations for future learning.
Through combining our knowledge of prostate cancer with that of our peers in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, we’re getting to grips with how prostate cancer evolves, what it looks like at a molecular level, and how as a disease it can vary from one man to another.
To tame prostate cancer we will focus our attention on four priority areas:
Consulting with researchers, health professionals and men affected by prostate cancer, our strategy – Ten years to tame prostate cancer – is based on what we know now, and what we can build on using this knowledge.
These are ambitious targets, and making inroads into these areas will be expensive, but with your help in supporting us fund this research, we will be able to stop prostate cancer being a killer.

Grand FInals night 2016 and Summer Charity finals 2016
This years Summer charity 2016 is the Ronald Mcdonald Children House.
At Ronald McDonald House Charities we provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation at specialist children's hospitals across the UK, enabling families to stay close to their child and maintain a degree of normal family life.
We support families while their child receives care and treatment in a specialist children's hospital by giving them a warm and welcoming place to rest their heads, just a moment away from their child. Over the last 25 years we have helped tens of thousands of families during some of the toughest periods in their lives. When a child is in hospital their family can often be faced with having to travel long distances each day and either pay for costly hotel rooms or sleep on a chair at their bedside. Our Houses provide our families with a comfortable place to stay that's close to their child, giving them more time and energy to focus on being together. There are currently 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all just moments away from their respective children's wards, with plans for further developments well under-way. Our dedicated teams of staff and volunteers welcome families to stay for days, weeks and even years, and help them to feel as at home as possible. As an independent charity, we rely on the support and generosity of our volunteers, fundraisers and donors, and thanks to their tireless efforts the Houses are able to help over 7,000 families each year. It is our mission to ensure we have sufficient funds and expertise to develop and sustain free accommodation at every specialist children’s hospital in the UK. This will allow us to help thousands more families stay together, while their child is in hospital, in the years to come.
Here is a little write up and web link.
It is the early hours of the morning and a hospital urgently requires blood. Currently hospitals within Shropshire and Staffordshire have little choice but to call a local taxi company to collect and deliver the blood. The hospital would then be charged retail rates for this “service”, which can cost between £200-300 per trip!
That’s where we intend to help!
Shropshire and Staffordshire Blood Bikes (SSBB) is an Emergency Volunteer Service providing urgent and emergency transportation of life saving medical supplies to the NHS Foundations across our region. Through the dedication of our volunteer staff, we hope to be operational every night of the year
DISTRIBUTION NIGHT FOR ALL YOUR COMPETITION FORMS AND FIXTURES WILL BE ON 6TH AUGUST 2015 AT THE TELEGRAPH BETWEEN 8PM AND 10PM, PLEASE BRING PLAYERS REGISTRATION FORM AND MONIES WITH YOU.
