A fundraising night in Porthcawl will take place in January in support of Prostate Cymru’s Sports & Community Executive Christopher Leyshon’s challenge of raising £100,000 for the charity over the next few years. Chris is aiming to raise £100,000 to help the charity fund its first ever helpline and to get PSA testing facilities on “The Boys Bus”, the charity’s awareness vehicle.

The fundraising evening will take place on Friday 25th January at The Cabin Disco Bar in Porthcawl, a popular coastal bar in the seaside town. Local band Ryder featuring guest Robbie Shaw will be performing at the event which starts at 7:00pm. In addition to the great entertainment there will be a small auction taking place on the night with all proceeds being to donated to Prostate Cymru, the leading Welsh prostate health charity supporting men with benign prostate disease and prostate cancer.

Entry fee is £5. Tickets can be bought in advance by visiting The Cabin Disco Bar or ringing 01656 784609. Tickets will also be available to buy on the door.

The event is one of many smaller events supporting Chris’ fundraising. His main activities to reach his target include climbing mountains worldwide, aiming to summit different peaks that will total 30,480 vertical metres (the equivalent of 100,000 feet). Chris and friends have already completed the British Three Peaks in 24 hours and weather permitting, will have completed a skydive in Swansea by the time of the fundraising night in Porthcawl. Other challenges lined up include scaling Pen Y Fan multiple times, Angels Landing in Utah, Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal, Machu Picchu in the Andes Mountains in Peru and Mount Blanc in France.

Chris is fundraising offline and also has a JustGiving page open for online donations.
