Why I'm fundraising
I - or rather, Billy and I - are pledging for The Urology Foundation because we have family experience of the illnesses which it supports, and we'd heard about the excellent work it does pioneering new treatments.

TUF is one of the smaller medical charities but is at the forefront of research into prostate cancer, kidney damage and incontinence. It also conducts research into bladder cancer, testicular cancer, kidney stones, interstitial cystitis, and urinary tract infections. These are very common diseases – as many as 1 in 3 of us will suffer from them in our lifetime. If you're lucky, they are just uncomfortable and debilitating; if you're unlucky, they are life-ending.

The Foundation relies entirely on donations from members of the public for its annual income. The cycle challenges it organises in order to raise money are, therefore, vital.

Our ride in India involved doing 50-60 miles a day in 30 degrees across rough country tracks and through muddy villages.

Most of the people who took part either work in urology or are related to someone who has suffered a urological disease. As a group, we were highly motivated to finish the challenge and raise as much as possible. At the last count, we had well over £200,000. And because TUF is a lean charity, the funds raised really do make a difference.

If you can chip in, that would be wonderful.

Thank you.

Philip and Billy
