Every year Alfie’s Golf Society, La Ronda supports a charity selected by the Captain. In the season 2018 our then captain, Ian Ingledew, decided our support would go to Prostate Cancer UK.
Prostate cancer is now the largest cancer disease in the UK and now kills more people than breast cancer. The research which our donation helps to fund assists in drug development for prostate cancer which is now also being used in the treatment for breast cancer.
John Brownless, who is one of the UK ambassadors for the charity Prostate Cancer UK, played golf with Alfie’s on Thursday 30th May and we presented him with a cheque for €1,080.00 to this worthwhile cause.
1 in 8 men will contract prostate cancer and if caught early enough can be cured 100%. The test carried out is a simple blood test which checks for levels of PSA. So gents if you have not been tested recently get in touch with your doctor.
