Richard Macaire Memorial Trek



Cheque presentation and film screening

Last year Prostate Action’s trustee Professor Roger Kirby led a team of seven doctors and two patients along a challenging route through the Himalayas, in memory of Richard Macaire, who was an avid supporter of Prostate Action and who sadly lost his battle with prostate cancer in 2010.

On 9 February Prostate Action was presented with a cheque for the amazing sum of £442,546, raised by everyone who took part. The presentation was held at the offices of Working Title Films in Marylebone, and was followed by the screening of a short film of the trek, made by Michael Ellard.

The short film of their daunting adventure can be seen here. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who was involved in raising such an awesome amount of money, which will enable us to fund exciting new research and education to beat prostate disease.
