A Message From The Chairman.
The Committee and I would like to say a huge 'Thank You' to all, for the support we have had within the group, and not forgetting the excellent work put in by our retiring founder committee members Bob and Simon. We have more than achieved our goal from September last year when we set a target to reach out and spread the Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness campaign.

The OPCSG within the last few months has made a dramatic impact and are well recognised for the work it has done. The three major charities, The Prostate Cancer Support Federation, Prostate Action and The Prostate Cancer Charity are all supporting us in everything that we do. It was a good feeling that all three charities came together to help us with the awareness event at the Oxford United Football club as we had merchandise - T/Shirts, Hats, Balloons and Flags and, of course, 1000's of leaflets to give out (over 2,000 on the day). Thanks also to all of the helpers on the day.

Even more good news is that we have now our own P.A System, Projector and Screen (paid for by one of our members together with a Grant from a local Charity), and a cash balance in the bank. There are just too many people to thank and I am sure we will find that even over the next few months further support will start finding its way to us as we have well and truly spread the seed.

I look forward to another successful year for the Group and the opportunity to support the membership in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to let us know how you think we can improve what we are doing, as it is your Group.

Let's look forward to the Quiz night on the 30th April.

Regards to all, Dave Beesley.


We are also pleased to report that John Delnevo is back at home and making a steady recovery.

Monday 30th April at The Oxford Golf Club
Our next meeting is on Monday 30th April, again 6.30 pm for 7.00 pm at the Oxford Golf Club. There will be a 'light hearted' quiz, run on similar lines as the last one. It will not be an 'individual' contest, but a team effort. The best advice is to sit at the correct table!

Don't forget, wives, partners and friends are welcome. Following the quiz there will be opportunities for discussion amongst yourselves.

See you on Monday,

George Goldsmith
Oxfordshire Prostate Cancer Support Group
