Keyline raises over £100,000 for Prostate Cancer UK

Published:  07 July, 2014

Keyline organised a 1980s themed car rally across Europe, raising £101,209 for Prostate Cancer UK.

The rally was made up of 27 cars with teams from Keyline's UK offices, local suppliers, customers and the charity. They travelled from Northfleet to Hamburg, via France and Holland.

Ex-international footballer and ambassador for Prostate Cancer UK Luther Blissett also took part in the rally, which was made up of vehicles based around classic 1980s TV and films including Top Gun and the A-Team.

This was the fifth rally organised by Keyline, which forms an important part of the company’s overall fundraising programme for Prostate Cancer UK. Keyline also takes part in Movember, and has recently signed for Men United – the charity’s latest campaign creating a movement of men fighting against the disease.

Stephen Riggens, marketing director at Keyline, said: “This year’s rally was an enormous success and we are extremely grateful to everybody who donated. Raising more than £100,000 is an incredible achievement and this sum of money will make a huge difference in the fight against prostate cancer. We would like to thank everybody that took part and supported us in this very special and worthwhile adventure.”
