BPCA charity of the year 2022 announced

During lockdown the BPCA Staff team has been steadily raising money for men's health charity, Prostate Cancer UK.

Prostate Cancer fundraising total BPCA

Tough at times due to the restrictions, the fundraising efforts began in March for #MarchTheMonth where the team walked 11,000 steps a day; each step to represent more than 11,000 men who die from prostate cancer every year. 

Next up we had a Euros 2021 sweepstake, with the teams being divided up between our staff team to help build our fundraising pot further.

Team members also took part in Run the Month October, 50 miles throughout the month any way they wanted - whether it was a mile at a time or a couple of cheeky marathons!

At the time of writing (14 December) the total stands at a whopping £2,657! That's 88% of our total target of £3,000, which we increased halfway through the year after hitting our original target. 

We owe a huge thanks to everyone who donated; whether it was a big donation or small, every single penny will go towards an amazing cause.

Prostate Cancer fundraising thank you BPCA

So what's next? 

After a quick poll on Teams, the BPCA Staff team chose the next charity of the year they'd like to support. 

Our fundraising efforts next year will be for Dementia UK: a charity providing support for dementia sufferers and their families. 

Until then, there's still two weeks left in 2021 and if you'd like to increase our final total for Prostate Cancer UK, you can help at bpca.org.uk/donate
