Prostate cancer generally affects men over 50 and is rare in younger men. Itís the most common type of cancer in men. Around 37,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year.

It differs from most other cancers in the body, in that small areas of cancer within the prostate are very common and may stay dormant (inactive) for many years.

As it is not possible currently to hold Prostate Cancer Awareness days, Burnham Lions are working with the Graham Fulford Trust to enable men to conduct the test in the comfort of their own homes to check for early signs of possible Prostate Cancer. The kits are the same  as used by the NHS.

Itís thought that about half (50%) of all men over 50 may have cancer cells in their prostate, and 8 out of 10 (80%) men over 80 have a small area of prostate cancer. Most of these cancers grow very slowly and so, particularly in elderly men, are unlikely to cause any problems.

In a small proportion of men, prostate cancer can grow more quickly and in some cases may spread to other parts of the body, particularly the bones.

Lion President Phil presenting our final Certificate of Appreciation to local Covid19 hero Paul Kelly. The club was delighted to award the certificates to Paul and also Kim Wheatley of Woodstock Coffee House and Michelle Kelly (Michelle's Mobile Catering), for the amazing job they did in providing free meals to local people whilst they were shielding. Over 13 weeks this amounted to thousands of meals, and we were proud to be able to do our bit by being one of the groups sponsoring this effort.


Burnham Lions is a service club, dedicated to helping the community, whether that be locally, nationally or internationally.

As a club, we organise various events for the local community including our Christmas Fayre and parade, and actively fund raise in the area. We also look to undertake work which can enhance the lives of local people, individually or as a community.
