Why they did it

Vicky said: “I decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because it had affected a few of my customers and I wanted to help make a difference.

“I am really overwhelmed and proud to be named Landlady of the Month, what an honour! The event went really well and I’m thrilled we were able to raise awareness of a disease that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK. Everyone had a great time and I couldn’t have done it without the time and dedication of the ladies involved with the calendar and arranging all the events."

    Why they did it

    Tom & Ollie said: “We decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because they have previously helped some of our local customers through difficult times and are still supporting other customers. It is a subject that isn’t talked about enough and anything that can be done to raise awareness is a must. Our customers are always supportive of charity events but even we were shocked by just how much was raised on the day, bearing in mind we are one of, if not the smallest pub in West Sussex.

    “We are a small traditional real ale house with some clearly very generous customers! The pub was absolutely packed, even all the standing room was filled by local residents coming to donate money to such a worthy cause, whilst having a great evening at the same time and we look forward to organising similar events in the future.

    “We are really pleased to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honour! The event went really well and I’m thrilled we were able to raise awareness of a disease that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK. Everyone had a great time and I encourage all landlords to sign up and turn their pubs into a Men United Arms.”

    Why they did it

    David said: “I decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because I am grateful for the assistance they gave me after I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February 2016, and to draw attention to prostate cancer as we men are reluctant to discuss problems that are associated with this most prevalent illness.

    “I am really surprised to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honour! The recognition though should be jointly awarded to my wife Marilyn and all our staff – who freely volunteered their services on the night – and our loyal customers who so generously supported the evening, without whom it would not have been possible.

    “The event went really well and I’m thrilled we were able to raise awareness of a disease that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK. Everyone had a great time and I encourage all landlords to sign up and turn their pubs into a Men United Arms."

    Why they did it

    Donna said: “We decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because Alison came to me and asked if she could do a charity night to raise money for prostate cancer because her husband had been told he had prostate cancer. I decided that I would support her and join her in the Head Shave. The customers have supported us both, Tina Mills donated the food which was fantastic and the company I work for, Southern Counties Taverns donated the raffle prizes which on the night raised over £200. We both hope that we have made people in the pub more aware of this cancer. 

    “I am really shocked and overwhelmed to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honor! The event went really well and I’m thrilled we were able to raise awareness of a disease that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK.

    Why they did it

    Rob, said: “I decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because several of my customers have been affected by prostate cancer, both successfully recovered and unfortunately lost their lives to the disease as well. I lost my uncle in September after an 18-month battle with prostate cancer after the disease spread to his bones.

    “At 59 it was no age to lose a life with so much to look forward to after paying his mortgage off and never being able to see the world as he had wished. We were all devastated and my Aunt has lost a husband and best friend. It really hurt to see the anguish and pain the loss has caused her. I said I would make that difference for her and us as a family.

    “I am really delighted and gracious in acknowledgement to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honor! The events went really well and I’m thrilled we were able to raise awareness of a disease that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK. Everyone had a great time and I encourage all landlords to sign up and turn their pubs into a Men United Arms.”

    “I am really thrilled to be named Landlord of the Month, what an honour! Raising money for Prostate Cancer UK brings all the people in the pub together, and we also found that a few locals have been diagnosed. Touch wood, there’s a lot of them that have had successful treatment and come out the other side smiling. I encourage all landlords to sign up and turn their pubs into a Men United Arms.”

    What they did

    Stephen and regular customer Bob organised a match day collection at the pub for Crystal Palace's game against Everton, with hundreds of Eagles fans filling the venue before the game.

    leigharmscalendar

    What they did

    Jo has been supporting a group of her regular customers to create a 'Naked Facts' calendar to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and awareness of the most common cancer in men. Jo will be selling the £10 calendars in the pub and will have badges and wristbands available for donations on the bar, with all proceeds going to Prostate Cancer UK.

    The Leigh Arms Chef, Andy and Barman Mikey feature as 'men of the month', while December showcases all of the men involved. Mike, who is 'Mr February' will also be playing with his band at the pub for a fundraiser later in the month, with Jo now aiming to be in with a chance of becoming Prostate Cancer UK’s Favourite Local.

    Why they did it

    “I decided to support Prostate Cancer UK because some of my customers fall into the age group where men’s cancers, in particular prostate cancer are most common. I was astounded that they didn’t know about the signs and symptoms and so decided to help Lisa Scott and Sheila Whittle of Acton Bride to organise the calendar. Everyone had a great time and I encourage all landlords to sign up and turn their pubs into a Men United Arms.

    Leigharmsjo

    It is critical that everyone is aware of the symptoms and I want to encourage people to talk. Hopefully in such a relaxed atmosphere those conversations become less awkward and more open."

     Wigan central

    What they did

    Jo transformed the pub into a Men United Arms for 10 days and organised different events each day to raise money and awareness of prostate cancer. Their events included beer and whisky tastings, a pub quiz, raffles, sweepstakes and even a Luau Fancy Dress Night. They were popular with customers and helped raise a huge £3,359.98 for the charity. The owners of the pub, Patsy and John Slevin from Prospect Brewery also brewed a charity beer called Decadence, which was launched at Wigan Central and 10p of every pint sold went to Prostate Cancer UK.

    Why they did it

    “My pub benefits from a good cross section of customers, but I do have a large number of men who frequent that either know someone who has been affected by prostate cancer, or had it themselves. Ever since I put the first box of badges out on the bar, the donations have been astounding! My customers feel really strongly about this charity. It’s very rewarding to see the community of people who have helped me continue to raise more and more for a great cause.”
