Make us your Charity of the Year

We’ll send a representative to talk at your club, and again for a cheque presentation at the end of the year. We can also support you with fundraising materials, give you advice, publicise your efforts on our website and send you an information pack.

A brother like you

Colin Taylor, a Freemason for 26 years and past Master of Integrity, Lodge 380 nr. Leeds, is passionate about raising awareness and funds among fellow Freemasons for Prostate Cancer UK.

Colin Taylor

Prostate cancer mainly affects men over 50, and with 1 in 8 men in the UK being diagnosed with the disease, there isn’t a lodge in the country that won’t have very personal reasons for wanting to join the fight against the most common cancer in men. Colin was diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer in June 2011, aged just 50. As a husband, father and grandfather, the support he received from our Specialist Nurses was invaluable.

After a successful operation Colin was given the all clear just four months after his initial diagnosis. Since then Colin has dedicated much of his time to delivering awareness talks and raising funds to support our lifesaving work.

My urology specialist gave me a leaflet from Prostate Cancer UK which helped me to understand all the jargon that I had heard. This was an invaluable tool to me.
