OPCSG dates for your 2017 diary:
"Since I was diagnosed with prostate cancer every time I have met fellow sufferers through this support group I have gained confidence and lost fear of the disease, be it at Cassington bike night, the Oxford meetings, the Thames boat trip, the bowling night and last night with X and Y. To see other men with the disease getting on with their lives and having fun diminishes the fear so much."
Meet some of us who are here to help you. We've been through it ourselves or know people who have. We empathise, we help, we are here to support. This is just some of the team who are part of the Oxfordshire cancer prostate support group.
We run regular awareness events, informative events and socials - where we get together in an easy enviroment to chat. Do come along.
On Saturday 4 March Oxford United will play Bristol Rovers at home. OPCSG will be present to spr
Oxfordshire Prostate Cancer Support Group
Once again Bernard de Petrucci and his team at the Lord Kitchener, Curbridge, have stepped forward to support OPCSG. At an entertaining quiz evening organised by Witney Rotary Club at the pub on 16 August, a raffle fetched £242 which Bernard has donated to OPCSG funds. In the quiz the OPCSG team led through four rounds but slipped up on trivia (we are a serious-minded lot!) and ended in a respectable third place. Thank you Bernard and Witney Rotary.
To those who have helped
The photo shows OPCSG Committee member Dave Hawes receiving a cheque for £700 from Bob Greenwell, Past Master of Alfred Lodge, and David Wright, current Master of the Lodge. The cheque was handed over at Witney Carnival on 9 July, and we are extremely grateful for the support offered.
You can see the Lodge's website at http://www.oxfordshirefreemasons.org.uk/news.htm, with a link back to this one.
Once again the Sportsmen’s Dinner has been extremely generous in raising money for OPCSG. The photo shows President Dave Beesley receiving a cheque for £990 from ex England rugby star David Duckham at the dinner, which David made up to a round £1000 out of his own pocket.
We run awareness events for guys around Oxfordshire and the one at Oxford United was our biggest yet. Take a look at the video of the event to find out more about how we encourage men to take their health more seriously.
