Tuktuk Day Eighteen

The purpose of this digital tour – apart from, hopefully educating and entertaining the blog readers is to raise awareness for my local football club, FC Deportivo Galicia and the Prostate Cancer UK charity. My stated target is to raise £5,000 for each of them. I want to thank everybody who has so generously supported me so far. It is appreciated. Thanks. Yesterday, I focused on FC Deportivo Galicia and its BuyMeACoffee appeal. Today, it is only right that I balance this with some more info on Prostate Cancer UK. Today I got some fantastic news that Carlisle United are keen to assist and you will see that they have been very involved with the work of Prostate Cancer. More anon!

Possibly the highest profile Prostate Cancer activist is Jeff Stelling, MBE who has done much to raise funds and awareness for the cause. At Luton, Mick Harford the Luton Town legend has equally been ceaseless in his efforts and I am delighted to confirm he has invited me to Luton to talk all things cancer and football. Thanks, Mick, it is hugely appreciated. Anybody who can win a league cup final against Arsenal will always be a friend! Please don’t think that takes away from almost 600 games and two England caps but beating Arsenal in a cup final is always a special moment for me.

Today, Prostate Cancer UK kindly sent me some updates of their work. The statistics are terrifying. Click the links for further information and details of how you can get yourself checked…FAST!

What can you do ……

Risk checker

1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer. If you’re over 50, or you’re black, or your dad or brother had it, you’re at even higher risk.

Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening. But when it is, the earlier you catch it the more likely it is to be cured.

Answer these three quick questions to check your risk. It will only take 30 seconds and could save your life.

As always, I hope that you will consider a donation however small to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK If everybody chipped in £1 I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier in West London whilst the charity continued there great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can. If you can’t you can still help massively by sharing this page about the work of Prostate Cancer. Thanks.
