Charity of the Year - Prostate Cancer UK

Everyone’s a winner

The other two charities shortlisted for the Charity of the Year programme 2012-14 were Alzheimer’s Society and Whizz-Kidz. Royal Mail donated £50,000 each of the two charities at the start of the programme in 2012. In April 2014, we met our target to raise £2 million for Prostate Cancer UK - £1million from colleagues and £1 million from Royal Mail. From this point on we matched any money you raised for Alzheimer’s Society and Whizz-Kidz as well as Prostate Cancer UK.
