Tuktuk Day 78

Let’s Not Forget

Yes, I know it’s not as exciting as reminiscing about a wonderful goal or fabulous day-trip but please let me remind you all what the purpose of the tuktuk tour is. It is to raise awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Let’s not forget – one in eight men will be affected by Prostate cancer in their life.

Here is today’s newsletter from the charity.

‘If I had a pound for every prostate cancer picked up purely by chance…’

Hi Steve,

You may have read our recent email about our new TV appeal. The appeal centres on the fact that too many men visit their GP for something unrelated, and a standard blood test reveals that they may be at risk of prostate cancer.

This has been based on real stories men and doctors have told us.

The majority of men that I see with prostate cancer have come to me with what we call an incidental diagnosis. Too often the prostate cancers I see are more advanced, they could have been caught earlier

Dr. Noël, Consultant Urological & Robotic Prostate Surgeon

Will you help fund research that leaves nothing to chance?

Research into earlier diagnosis and awareness can save lives, which is why we’re asking you to please send a gift today and help us fund this work.

12,000 men die of prostate cancer every year, that’s one man’s life every 45 minutes. All too often they find out by complete chance, too late. Your gift today could help fund the research that will improve the odds of diagnosing prostate cancer earlier and stop men dying too soon.

Because men’s lives shouldn’t be left to chance.

Please, donate today to stop men being diagnosed by chance.


Until next time, thanks

All at Prostate Cancer UK

PS. Watch our new TV appeal here

We’re raising awareness on chance diagnosis with our new TV appeal, which you can also watch on YouTube.


I am also trying to raise awareness and today I make no apologies for “shaking the tin.” I wonder how many of you would be happy to add just £1? I would be very grateful if you would consider a donation however small to support  Prostate Cancer UK  If everybody chipped in £1 I would easily hit my target of £5,000 and the charity would continue to fund their great work. Every single penny goes DIRECT to Prostate Cancer UK. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can donate. If you can’t you can still help massively by sharing this page about the work of Prostate Cancer.
