Orchid is the UK’s leading charity working on behalf of anyone affected by or interested in male cancer – prostate, testicular and penile cancer. Established in 1996 by testicular cancer patient, Colin Osborne MBE and the oncologist who saved his life, Professor Tim Oliver, Orchid exists to save men’s lives from male cancer through a range of support services, education and awareness campaigns and a pioneering research programme.

This fantastic event will be held on 5th of April and once again we are on the lookout for some enthusiastic, passionate and bright people to come down and help out on the day, and of course we thought of our brilliant 2016 ‘Where is Willy’ Volunteers!
