The Seniors and Ladies captains have agreed that the charity they will support during 2021/22 will be Prostate Cancer UK. This is a national charity that supports men with this deadly disease. We have all known many friends and others who have had to deal with this awful disease and sadly many are no longer with us.
This year we hope to raise a lot of money but also, just as importantly, raise awareness of this silent killer. It affects most men over the age of 60 and a man will die every 45 minutes from this disease. Remember, whilst you are playing your round of golf at Avington 4 men wil die from this disease!
Prostate Cancer UK have sent "men on men" pin badges which we are selling for a minimal fee of £2.00. Please see the seniors captain to get yours. I hope everyone will support our fund raising efforts throughout the year and join the fight to stop prostate cancer from being a killer.
