Our Charity for 2024
The club has been supporting local charities for over 40 years ------
Captains Jeremy Sherwood and Terri de Peyrecave have joined forces this year to raise funds for the
based at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford
The Prostate Project is a regional charity whose mission is "to give men a better chance of beating prostate cancer." It provides support to men across Surrey, East Sussex and North Hampshire.
It was formed in 1999 with its main achievement of contributing half the £5m necessary to build the Stokes Centre, a dedicated Urology outpatient and day treatment Centre at the Royal Surrey. It also funds leading edge research on prostate cancer at the University of Surrey, work which is applicable to other types of cancer.
Although prostate cancer is a men's disease, women play a vital role in getting men to recognize the disease and do something about it.
