Prescient Group donates 10% of profits to Prostate Cancer UK

Recruitment consultancy Prescient Group has donated 10% of their August proceeds to Prostate Cancer UK, which is a cause close to their hearts.

The specialist firm, which has offices in Nottingham, Manchester and London, has also fundraised throughout the year with events such as a sponsored marathon run.

Prostate Cancer UK was founded in 1996 and its top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer killing men – approximately one in eight men, in the UK, will get this form of cancer in their lifetime. It invests millions to find better treatments and tests than can spot fast-growing cancers early and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives.

Over the last two decades Prostate Cancer UK has funded and accelerated some of the biggest breakthroughs in prostate cancer care – from the use of multiparametric MRI to improve diagnosis, to the world’s first precision medicine for prostate cancer.

Charlotte Churm, founder and director of Prescient Group said: “Collectively we chose Prostate Cancer UK as our charity, as I unfortunately lost my father to the disease in 1997. My father was only 49 years old, so this cause is very close to my heart.

“During August, we donated 10% of all our permanent role profits, towards the charity as we believe this is the least we can do.”

“In addition to this, we sponsored my brother Nick Churm £500 to complete the London Landmark’s Half Marathon this year which he successfully finished.”

“Prostate Cancer UK is a charity that provides incredible work to raise awareness of the disease and help those who are suffering and their families. Our donation will help the charity, as well as highlight to our network the importance of getting checked.”

The charity hosts a variety of fundraising events, every year, from 5K, 10K runs and obstacle races to half marathons and full marathons. As well as campaigning and educating people, across the country, around who could be at risk and identifying how to detect early signs or symptoms.

Alongside Charlotte, founders and directors of Prescient Group Joel Fletcher and Ed Robinson will be gearing up to complete a sponsored three peaks challenge in 2023, with all proceeds going to the charity.
