Our charity of the year




Throughout 2020, the DTA will be supporting the Prostate Cancer UK charity. Prostate cancer mainly affects men over 50 and the risk increases with age. The risk is even higher for black men and men with a family history of prostate cancer.

Gabriella Bailey, Head of Community Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: "We're so grateful that DTA have chosen to help raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK throughout 2020. The money raised will help us fund research for real change, from more effective testing to better treatments. Currently one man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer in the UK. That's more than 11,500 men a year and by 2030, prostate cancer is set to become the most commonly diagnosed cancer of all in the UK. We need to turn the game around for men and make prostate cancer a disease that the next generation of men do not fear. We thank DTA for joining the fight."
