The Prostate Cancer Charity is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for three Third Sector Excellence Awards. The awards recognise and celebrate the work of the not-for-profit sector and showcase talent, innovation and success.

The Charity has been shortlisted for Best Fundraising Event for the Charity's Tour Rides, Best Fundraising Team and Volunteer of the Year, which recognises charity supporter Geoff Douglass' outstanding commitment to the cause.  

Across these three categories, the Charity faces strong competition from a number of different organisations, including Oxfam, British Heart Foundation and Shelter.

The fundraising team has worked tirelessly on a number of campaigns over the past twelve months and our Tour Rides are now a fixed part of the sportive cycling calendar. We are especially proud that Geoff has been shortlisted as his support to both the Fundraising and Media & PR team has been invaluable."
