The Chestnut Appeal For Prostate Cancer

The Chestnut Appeal for Prostate Cancer was founded in 1999 at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. Since then it has gone on to be at the forefront of prostate cancer care right across the region.

We support the very latest in treatments and technology that wouldn't be available without community fundraising and we rely on donations from the public.

Founded 2001

  • Mission statement

    That every person suffering & affected by prostate cancer will get the help and support they need.

    The charity will continue to supply the latest equipment, treatment and funding of salaries for prostate cancer nurse specialists. Without the support of the charity many of the procedures available in our hospitals quite honestly would not be there. We have a lot to be thankful for, and a huge amount to do in the future to ensure prostate cancer is continually talked about, that the South West corner of the UK isn’t forgotten about and that that we are able to attract the very best technologies to the area.
