Did you know prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men?

One in eight men and one in four black men will be diagnosed with it in their lifetime. It takes a life every 45 minutes, and is now a bigger killer than breast cancer.

And while the disease affects men, it has a knock-on effect for their partners, families and friends.

These are scary statistics, but together we can call time on prostate cancer.

That’s why we’re using our ideas, energy and resources to join forces with men’s health charity Prostate Cancer UK.

Together with our members and colleagues, we’ll be raising money for Prostate Cancer UK through our Community Champions scheme from now until June.

Our support kicks off with four charity quiz nights at Lincolnshire’s major football grounds, along with sales of official Prostate Cancer pin badges and much more.

And simply by shopping with us, you’ll be raising money.

Here’s what we’ll be doing over the next few months… 

Special fundraising quiz nights are being held at Lincolnshire’s major football grounds in Lincoln, Boston, Grimsby and Scunthorpe. 
Teams are invited to beat the quiz master using their general knowledge skills, with a prize for the winning group.
There’ll also be exciting goodies up for grabs during an auction and raffle at each night including signed t-shirts and footballs.
Tickets are just £5 each and you can find out more here.

A donation will be made through the scheme each time a member shops in a Lincolnshire Co-op outlet from March until June.
Colleague fundraising and the carrier bag levy will also be added to the pot.

Official Prostate Cancer UK pin badges will be on sale at Lincolnshire Co-op food stores for a suggested £1 contribution. 

Fundraising will also come from generous holidaymakers booking trips at the Society’s travel branches.

There’ll also be a focus on raising awareness, with free fold-up information leaflets available at all 49 of Lincolnshire Co-op’s pharmacies.

Prostate Cancer UK is a registered charity in England and Wales (1005541) and in Scotland (SC039332). Registered company number 2653887.
