A Barnsley businessman is donating a share of his profits to prostate cancer after battling with the disease.

Steve Fisher, aged 68, of Carlton, Barnsley, is donating 10 per cent of every sale at his holiday firm Not Just Travel – New Horizons this year and is hoping to raise £10,000 every year.

The cash will be handed to Prostate Cancer UK’s Men United movement.

Mr Fisher said: “I decided to start fundraising for Prostate Cancer UK because I wanted to raise awareness of the risks and encourage other men to visit their doctor and get themselves some early advice.”

“When I joined Men United I realised that I could become more involved and raise funds as well as awareness in the area, and I am hoping to link up with other volunteers in the Yorkshire area to really raise the awareness levels amongst men, and equally important their partners and family.”

Mark Bishop, director of fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “It’s fantastic to see that Steve has decided to take on this fundraising challenge to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK. By doing this they are joining Men United and helping to make a real difference in furthering the fight against prostate cancer.”
