Spinks is donating £1 to Prostate Cancer UK for the sale of bulk bags
A E Spink is launching a year-long partnership with leading men’s health charity, Prostate Cancer UK, in a bid to support those affected by the disease and fund vital research.
The Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire based builders’ merchants, will be donating £1 for every bulk bag sold from 1st November 2020 to 31st October 2021, with a minimum annual sum of £10,000.
The money raised will be used to fund research into better diagnosis and treatment of the disease, and support for men and their families affected. A E Spink also wants to raise awareness of the disease, particularly among its male employees.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Around 400,000 men in the UK are living with the disease and one man dies from it every 45 minutes.
Chris Meek, Building Sales Director at A E Spink, said: “It is fantastic to be partnering Prostate Cancer UK. Our aggregate bulk bags now carry the Prostate Cancer logo as we want to raise as much awareness as possible with our colleagues, customers and the public along with money to fund vital research. In advance, we’d like to thank everyone who purchases a bulk bag and supports our fundraising effort and helping us to raise awareness of the disease”
Tracey Pritchard, Director of Fundraising and Supporter Engagement at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “We are so grateful to A E Spink for choosing to support Prostate Cancer UK. We want to make prostate cancer something that the next generation of men do not fear and will continue to stand side by side with men and their loved ones. We look forward to working with everyone at A E Spink and thank them for helping us turn our ambitions into a reality.”
