Support to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

Our support group participates in fund-raising and publicity events on behalf of the PCFA. For instance, in the past the group has organised BBQ fund-raising events that have generated significant funds for the PCFA. These events also provide the opportunity for group members to provide information to the public.

Notable BBQ events have occurred in past years in September - Prostate Cancer Awareness month. In 2010 the ACT Health Minister Katy Gallagher hosted a BBQ outside King O'malley's Irish Pub in Civic, with assistance from a number of MLA's, the CFMEU and Peter Barclay OAM. In 2011 a similar event was held at the same location, hosted by the leader of the opposition in the ACT Legislative Assembly - Jeremy Hansen. In 2013 the leader of the Greens - Meredith Hunter - was the host. At all of these events members from all parties in the ACT Legislative Assembly were willing workers. The CFMEU and members of the Weston Creek Rotary provided equipment and helpers. The support and assistance from the owner of the pub - Peter Barclay - was also greatly appreciated.
