We have been raising money across all three offices today to support Prostate Cancer UK. The charity is very close to our hearts after we lost a member of staff to the disease a few years ago.
Our team have been taking part in all kinds of activities throughout the day including dressing in blue, competing in the ‘Office Olympics’, buying cakes and raffle tickets, as well as donating money for a drink in the Blue Bar (after working hours!). Senior managers were also at the beck and call of their team to make tea and be fined for using certain phrases – a great money spinner!
Our campaign is focused on raising money AND awareness for prostate cancer. Here are some of the facts associated with the disease:
You may be more likely to get prostate cancer if:
- You are aged 50 or more
- You are black
- Your father or brother has had it
