The Story

The Thistle Windows Beetle is currently on a BIG adventure in support of a great cause!

Nick Grossett and Matthew Phimister from building materials specialists Keyline are driving the Thistle Windows Beetle across Europe in the 2019 Keyline Rally – raising vital awareness and funding for charity partner Prostate Cancer UK.

Prostate Cancer UK is at the forefront of the fight against prostate cancer.  Every 45 minutes one man dies from prostate cancer in the UK.  That’s someones dad, brother, uncle, granddad, husband or friend.

Figures announced earlier this year showed that for the first time ever, the number of men dying from prostate cancer every year has overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer.

Shockingly, 83% of men aren’t aware of their risk.  Prostate cancer is a disease that is underfunded with no screening programme, no accurate diagnostic test and not enough cancer nurse specialists to support the growing number of men affected.  However, with your support we can stop prostate cancer being a killer.
