Prostate Cymru Link With Victoria & Alberta

The Prostate Cymru Charity, it has to be said, enjoys widespread support throughout Pembrokeshire. On a recent wintry Saturday morning, it was the turn of the Victoria Inn and Micro Brewery in the village of Roch, by kind permission of licensees Andrew and Kate Miller, to open its doors and host a very well attended Prostate Cymru Big Breakfast.

Tony Pasternak, who is a native of Alberta in Canada, along with his Manchester born wife Sue, following a distinguished career in science and engineering, retired to Roch village three years ago.

With Tony having lost his father to Prostate Cancer, he is acutely aware that the prospect of him being diagnosed with the disease is now one in three. Upon hearing about the Prostate Cymru Big Breakfast initiative, supported by his wife Sue, he set about bringing the concept to the Victoria Inn.

With persuasion and natural charm very much in abundance, Tony secured the support of 15 suppliers and sponsors which enabled him to lay on a feast with 150 supporters turning up for a splendid, full Welsh breakfast. With a raffle to follow £1179.50 was raised.

The Prostate Cymru Big Breakfast was launched for the first time this year. There has been a very positive response throughout Wales and breakfasts hosted around Pembrokeshire alone have raised in excess of £5000. The big Breakfast will return next year with the hope that even more groups and individuals will take part.
