Directly or indirectly, Prostate Centre people have been responsible for raising millions of pounds for prostate charities.
Professor Roger Kirby has had a long association with two urological charities: Prostate UK (now Prostate Action) and The Urological Foundation (TUF), both of which he helped to establish. He has recently retired as Chairman of Prostate UK, and is Secretary of TUF, which together have raised more than £10 million for research, education and patient awareness.
Every year Professor Kirby leads several fund-raising challenges such as climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, running the London Marathon, or cycling across Madagascar. He is usually accompanied by patients, with or without their prostates! Other activities include participating in auctions and fund-raising gala dinners; speaking at awareness-raising roadshows for GPs and nurses; and representing the charities on radio and television.
Other Prostate Centre staff also play their part: the annual “Pants in the Park” 5Km run is an opportunity to get fit, have some fun and raise funds along the way.
We invite all our patients to become involved in our charity events, or to organise one themselves. To view the charities’ activities, click on the links below:
