Dad's Army

About the group

After the sudden death of Stuart's dad in 2014 and Chris' dad's diagnosis of prostate cancer in 2016, Chris and Stuart decided that they wanted to raise more awareness about heart failure in young, middle aged men, and prostate cancer. With this in mind, they gathered a group of friends that were interested in helping them raise more awareness of both diseases and called the team Dad's Army.

This year, Dad's Army will be attempting two challenges in aid of Prostate Cancer UK and the British Heart Foundation

Our fundraising page.
