A Voyage For Prostate Cymru

The City of St David’s is renowned for its support for good causes and recently one of their most prominent companies, Voyages of Discovery, who for over 25 years have provided wildlife voyages to the Pembrokeshire Islands and offshore whale and dolphin watching, presented a cheque for £2,000 to the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru.

In 2016 Voyages of Discovery nominated Prostate Cymru as their charity of the year. A highlight of their fundraising was a very special event in July when several of their vessels embarked on a “Prostate Cymru Boat Trip” embarking from St Justinian’s near St Davids and landing at the Quay in Haverfordwest near the Bristol Trader.

Presenting the cheque Rhys Price, who is director of the company, said “Prostate Cymru is a very good cause to support for the work that they are undertaking, particularly in the field of raising awareness in the County and throughout Wales which does make a difference to people’s lives.”

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting men in Wales. 2500 men in Wales are diagnosed and 550 die from the disease each year in Wales. 1 in 8 men in Wales will suffer from prostate cancer which becomes 1 in 3 if you have a father or brother who is affected.

Prostate Cymru have an awareness team who provide free of charge workplace awareness sessions and talks to other groups. For more information visit www.prostatecymru.com
