The coronavirus outbreak is affecting all of our lives and making us change the way we think about and do things. The safety of our supporters is so important to us and virtual fundraising is the safest way to support our research at this time.

This is also a fantastic opportunity to re-think how we fundraise. Connect with people you haven’t spoke to in a long time, take up new hobbies and use this extra time to think about what you want to achieve with your fundraising. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to complete a half marathon, or have you been working on a skill which you want to use for good? We’re here to support you every step of the way with whatever you want to do in this new normal.

Take on a personal challenge

Walk, run, cycle, dance - choose how you want to get active and raise as much as you can.


It’s so important to keep moving and stay active for our physical and mental well-being. With a personal challenge, you have complete control; you choose the activity, you pick the pace and simply raise as much as you can for our research.

Take on your own challenge

Host a virtual event

Connect with your friends and have some much-needed fun whilst supporting us.


Nothing will beat a pub quiz in a pub or being in a crowd at gig, but until we safely meet again in-person hosting a virtual event is brilliant way to stay connected, have a laugh and raise some money. Check out our guides for tips and ideas, and be sure to tell us about your virtual event.

How your money makes a difference

Like we all have, Prostate Cancer Research has faced its challenges from the coronavirus outbreak. Your fundraising will help us to continue supporting our life changing research, and ultimately will help us to transform lives. Without our research we cannot achieve better outcomes for men with prostate cancer and their families.

Our research

We currently fund eleven research projects, all of which aim to develop more effective treatments for and better understandings of prostate cancer. Following our ecosystem report, we are determined to fund projects that explore current gaps in knowledge and treatment to move the field forward and reach new and better treatments sooner.

Find out more about our specific research projects in our research area.

Our scientists

We fund scientists across the UK at all stages of their career. We care about the barriers faced by researchers and recognise the importance of nurturing and encouraging innovation and collaboration, to ensure that research is moving as effectively as possible to reach better outcomes for patients sooner.

By fundraising for us, you are supporting scientists at all stages of their research journey and ensuring they are treated with respect, offered flexibility and given the support they deserve.

You can find out more about our scientists in our research area.

Patient stories

We listen to patients and fund the research that will lead to outcomes that matter most to them, so that our research is entirely patient-focussed. By supporting PCR, you are supporting patients who are sharing their stories and experiences and helping to fund the research that matters most to them.

Find out more about our patient voice panel and hear from patients who have been impacted by PCR’s work.

Where your money goes

With your support, we will provide scientists with the space, flexibility, and environment that helps turn great ideas into successful treatments.

How much could you raise for our PCR scientists? Did you know that –

£73 would fund materials to grow a cell colony.

£250 would fund 6 months of essential lab consumables.
