Gents Check your Water Pressure! How One Local Salon is Helping Prostate Cancer UK
Local Bognor Regis salon, Lotus Styling Ltd are fundraising to help Prostate Cancer UK.
Prostate cancer has overtaken breast cancer to become the third biggest killer in the UK.
Salon owner Daren Terry said; “Over the past twenty years, the number of men dying from prostate cancer has been steadily increasing as the advances in better treatments haven’t kept pace with the growing older population. Early diagnosis is the key to saving lives. Having lost my father in March this year it is very close to my heart.”
The salon, who are known for their window displays have used the humorous slogan, “Gents – how’s your water pressure this spring?” in their window to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer UK. This window display was kindly donated by local company, Adapt Display.
Throughout the month of May the salon ran a series of fundraising events in the salon to raise awareness and support for the charity, they have exceeded the £1000 target.
Salon owner Kate Terry said; “Last week was International Men’s Health Week and we held a fundraising day on Friday 16 June with lots of fun activities in the salon to help us reach our target of £1000. We managed to raise an amazing £1050 with the support from our clients, staff and friends.”
One in eight men in the UK will get Prostate Cancer with determining factors including; age, ethnicity and family history.
