£420 Raised During Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Jenks & Cattell Engineering Ltd is home to over 80 men, which statistically means 10% of our workforce could be diagnosed will prostate cancer. This frightening statistic influenced us to make a significant contribution to Prostate Cancer UK to support vital efforts in understanding, combating and researching this prevalent disease during March, which is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

The company’s employees rallied together, demonstrating their compassion and dedication to men’s health by purchasing the official Prostate Cancer UK badges and wearing them with pride. The fundraising activity successfully raised £210 which Jenks & Cattell Engineering matched pound for pound, resulting in an impressive grand total of £420 which will directly contribute prostate cancer research, helping scientists develop better diagnostic tools, treatments and ultimately save lives.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer), and early detection is crucial for improving outcomes, and our fundraising initiative not only raised funds, but also spread awareness of Prostate Cancer. We hope that our workplace awareness during March has positively impacted our employees to be aware of the symptoms and encourage open conversations about men’s health and that our £420 donation creates a pathway toward a healthier future for men everywhere.

March the Month is a walking event hosted by Prostate Cancer UK, creating awareness by marching 11,000 steps to represent the 11,000 lives lost to prostate cancer each year, and Jenks & Cattell Engineering hope to get involved next year – watch this space as we look forward to receiving your support in 2025.
