Haverfordwest Services Club Support Prostate Cymru

Haverfordwest Services Club raised just over £1,500 for charity in 2017 through dedicated fundraising by the club’s Entertainments Committee, bar staff, and the support of many of its members. Cheques were presented at the Services Club on Tuesday 16th January to representatives of the three local charities chosen by the club’s Committee as recipients of this fundraising effort: Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru, Wales Air Ambulance and Breast Cancer Care Cymru.

The Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru were represented by founder member and senior ambassador Dai Davies MBE, who accepted a cheque for £375, and by Chairman Brian Harries BEM. .

Local fundraising such as Haverfordwest Services Club’s is vital to the ongoing operations of the charities. The work carried out in raising awareness across Pembrokeshire of the crucial importance of early detection of prostate cancer has led to the detection rate of prostate cancer in Pembrokeshire being twice as high as in any other area in Wales, thanks to the Pembrokeshire Friends’ awareness programme (99% of men contracting prostate cancer will live for at least another 10 years provided the condition is detected early).
