Prostate Cancer UK Fundraising Stands

What are we doing?

At Prostate Cancer UK, we've recently started fundraising out in public places. Each week we book a site, set up our stall, talk to people about why we're here and ask for their support.

So far, we've found it one of the best ways to get in touch with people who don't yet know about prostate cancer, their risk or the work we're doing to drive improvements in treatment, research and care. We're hoping it'll become a reliable base for funding our future research.

If you'd like to check that a fundraiser is legitimate, please ask to see their identification and then call us on 0800 082 1616. Our phonelines are open from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. You can also email us at

Your questions

  • Why are you fundraising like this?  

    We've found it a great way of raising money, raising awareness and connecting to people who are new to the cause. It's also cost-effective, which means we can channel much more of your donation into frontline areas like research.

    We're funded entirely by individual donations, so it's absolutely necessary for us to fundraise to continue our work. Direct debit is particularly cost-effective, as it helps keep administrative costs low and lets us plan ahead.

  • Is this fundraiser legitimate?  

    All of our fundraisers will be wearing branded clothes and carry official identification cards. They'll also be carrying our direct debit handsets, leaflets and information cards.

  • What are you asking for?  

    Our fundraisers will be asking you to pledge a regular donation by direct debit. They're not able to take other means of payment, such as cash or cheques, as a donation.

  • Do you have permission to fundraise here?  

    We always check with the local authority before we fundraise somewhere.

  • How are you regulated?  

    We're members of the Fundraising Standards Board, and we're also registered with the Fundraising Regulator. As such, we've committed ourselves to a high set of standards concerning privacy, transparency, data protection, and the way we use your donations. You can read more on our Fundraising promise pages.
