Every year 40,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed in the UK with 10,000 men losing their lives to the disease. The last 30 years has seen an explosion in our knowledge about cancer, and there have been major improvements in the survival of patients with breast and testis cancer but with prostate cancer, there have been little developments in the treatments available for the past 40 years and sadly the number of men affected by the disease continues to rise.
The centre was founded 20 years ago by Professor John Masters following the success with a research project into prostate cancer. The work needed funding so the charity was created to continue focusing specifically on the science behind prostate cancer. We carry out research into the causes of and treatment for the UK’s most frequently diagnosed male cancer and need over £1.5 million every year to fund its highly respected research programme.
The mission of The Prostate Cancer Research Centre is to improve the survival of men with prostate cancer. The Centre is one of the leading centres for prostate cancer research in the UK. The PCRC is one of just three to be designated a Development Centre of Excellence following a government initiative in prostate cancer research.
Our research centre has been looking for genetic changes that allow cancer cells to spread and have found a common genetic change, which they are hoping to target with drugs to slow down or prevent that spread. The other program of research they are working on is focusing on stem cells, as they think it’s the stem cells that are the source of the cancer, as stem cells are the only ones that live long enough to accumulate the number of genetic changes for cancers to develop and they are hoping to target and kill those cells because, if you target and kill the cancer steam cells, you’re effectively curing the disease.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
