Thank you to all Asda colleagues who went the extra mile to raise vital funds for Orchid. Over the year colleagues got up close and personal in a Strictly Come Dancing competition organised by Brackmills Depot, colleagues at Wakefield CDC cycled 72 miles, and Grangemouth held a sponsored canoe race.
Rebecca Porta, Orchid CEO said: “I am overwhelmed by the support and dedication from Asda colleagues to support Orchid this year. It means so much to the men who we support and I can’t thank them enough for giving their time to support us.”
This support means Orchid have been able to provide more information to men and their families via their Orchid Male Cancer Information service – and invested more funds towards research to help find better ways to diagnosis, treat and manage male cancer.
Orchid, which was formed in 1996 by former testicular cancer patient Colin Osborne, offers support and information to people affected by male-specific cancer. It does this through a dedicated medical research programme plus education and awareness campaigns – as well as a range of support services.
