We’ve pledged to raise £75,000 as part of a three-year partnership agreement with Prostate Cancer UK, and we’re already well ahead of schedule! But we’ve also set ourselves a target to raise £5.5million through further fundraising activity.
Club Insure will donate £5 per new or renewed policy over the next three years. We’ll also be running internal fundraisers, encouraging our customers to get involved as well as hosting charity campaigns!
Our mission is to raise awareness of prostate cancer and showcase the important work Prostate Cancer UK does. We want to make sure more men know the risk factors, know when to see their GP and how to receive treatment.

Prostate Cancer UK helps to raise vital funds and awareness of prostate cancer.
More than 120 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every single day, and nearly 12,000 men die of the disease each year. Yet many people still don’t know the symptoms or risk factors of prostate cancer. It’s time for this to change.
The inspirational charity works tirelessly to support men and raise awareness of prostate cancer, saving and extending lives through the important research it funds. Read more about the importance of Prostate Cancer UK here.
Lloyd Pinder, Associate Director of Club Insure and a much-loved member of the team, sadly passed away in September 2020. Our colleagues and customers knew Lloyd for years, and his sharp sense of humour, kindness and courage inspired so many of us.
Lloyd was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2016 when he was just 43. He continued to fight to enjoy time with his wife and two young daughters, whilst being an active Prostate Cancer UK ambassador.
We want to share Lloyd’s story and his message that it’s positivity and hard work which beats the odds, extends life and leaves an important legacy that will be remembered. We want to help spread that message as well as awareness about prostate cancer. Read more about Lloyd here.
Prostate Cancer UK, in partnership with the NHS, have launched a new campaign asking people to spread the word. It’s vitally important that the men with early-stage prostate cancer are found quickly before the cancer spreads. There are approximately 14,000 men who have prostate cancer that are undiagnosed in the UK.
From the smallest to the grandest donation, the money you raise makes a tangible difference to men living with prostate cancer.
£10 could pay for ten microscope slides for scientists researching the effects of new treatments.
£25 could fund one of our Specialist Nurses for one hour to support men affected by prostate cancer and their families.
£50 could fund 2.5 hours of research which could be the moment we make a breakthrough in understanding prostate cancer.
£1,000 Could pay for equipment that is used to isolate and analyse DNA and proteins, so scientists can perform many experiments to understand the molecular workings of prostate cancer.
£5,000 could pay for 200 men to receive a post-treatment recovery pack following surgery, hormone treatment or radiotherapy.
£20,000 Could cover the cost of developing a new test in the lab, and trying it on clinical samples of prostate cancer, so that it may one day form part of a new diagnostic test to help spot prostate cancer early.
£50,000 Could pay for a researcher for an entire year, bringing us closer to stopping prostate cancer being a killer.
In September 2021, seven keen and amateur cyclists from Club Insure took to the saddle and cycled 173 from Coast to Coast, raising over £15,000 in just one weekend! Read more about the Coast to Coast here.
There are lots more exciting fundraising events on the horizon, and we’re looking forward to sharing more about them soon.
The challenge will take two days, with the journey and times mapped out and available for anyone who wants to cheer us on. The team will depart from Lloyd Pinder House on Friday 2nd June 2023, and complete the trip on Saturday 3rd June.
Fundraising throughout the year, the team’s goal will be to raise £25,000 and surpasses the huge £15,000 we achieved previously.
