Heatforce Helps Raise Awareness

A Cardiff-based plumbing and heating company has shown their support for Prostate Cymru by holding a successful awareness day for their employees.

Held at Whitchurch Rugby Club in Cardiff, the awareness day was organised by Heatforce to help educate its staff on the effects of prostate related diseases. Fifty Heatforce employees attended the event to hear Prostate Cymru’s Head of Awareness, Dai John give an informative presentation.

The awareness day proved successful and one employee even made an appointment with his GP after the event to have a blood test taken.

Prior to holding the awareness day, Heatforce held their annual charity golf day and chose to donate part of their proceeds to Prostate Cymru. The event involved an evening dinner, which included a talk from former Welsh rugby international player Kingsley Jones. The golf day was a huge success and donated an impressive £4,477 to Prostate Cymru.

Paul Maddocks, managing director for Heatforce, said: “Being able to bring together contacts, have fun and raise money for charities seemed a great opportunity. We chose to support Prostate Cymru to help raise awareness of prostate cancer in support of our staff who have been affected both directly and indirectly by the illness.

“It was great to be able to host an awareness day for our employees to further show our support and we have also pledged to raise funds for Prostate Cymru at our next golf day.”

Andy Thomas, Chairman for Prostate Cymru, said: “We are extremely grateful to Heatforce for all the great work they have done for the charity. They held a successful awareness day for their employees and donated a substantial amount for Prostate Cymru. The money raised will help us continue the vital work in raising awareness for all prostate diseases.”
