Dash News update

 

2019 has got off to a great start for the charity

We have been approached by the Primrose Foundation, to work on a exciting project that is based here in Plymouth Devon . The Primrose foundation is a Breast Cancer Charity that treats and cares for patients battling Breast Cancer.

We are going to be working closely together to provide a campaign to create aware for Breast Cancer in Men. As this is a very rare Cancer for Men and it affects approx. 380 men per year in the UK, we feel it is important we raise this cause.

We are going to create a 2020 Calendar to raise awareness for Males Affected directly and indirectly by Breast Cancer. This collaboration will be called The Silver Primrose Calendar.

There is flower called a silver primrose and this will be our logo.

Thanks to Kasha Plant for designing it for us.

 

The Calendar gives local trades the opportunity to support our calendar and buy a month. This costs £250 and for this they are able to have a A4 photograph of them and their business logo or vehicle or doing whatever trade they do. There will only be one of any trade featured so its first come first served and its filling up fast…..

Additionally there is an opportunity for people to purchase a day and dedicate to whoever they like or even to themselves. This costs just £25 and again is first one first served. You have a maximum of 18 characters.

If you are interested in either of these two options please get in touch with us by email to [email protected]

The proceeds from this will be split equally between the two charities, so half will be donated directly to the primrose unit for them to raise awareness of breast cancer in men and the other half, we as a charity will use to provide days out/support for men and their families affected by cancer.

 

2017 has been a great year for the charity, we have successfully launched Dashnet ‘ If it isn’t me, it might be you’ in late April. It is a vision, we as a team, as a charity and as a community we have bought into. It is is great honour to provide that support to everyone.

As a charity we have been working on many avenues to try and create more awareness for Male Cancer and also enhance the awareness of Dashnet. So we are proud to announce that for the 2017/2018 Basketball campaign we will be supporting and working closely with the Plymouth Raiders Basketball team.

gfgDashnet is very important to the charity, as  it brings the community together as a whole, but Dan wanted to give something else extra back to the community. 

Dan decided on creating Dash Care packs for all the patients battling Testicular Cancer here in Plymouth as he knew personally what they were battling, he wanted to show that we as a charity that we care for their welfare and we are here for them always. So far over the past 6 months the charity has provided 30 gift packs to Patients whom are currently battling testicular cancer here in Plymouth Devon.

Recently the charity was presented with Community Champions award for our continuous work in the community. A very proud moment for the charity.
