Allstate NI Employee Raises £800 for Prostate Cancer UK

Allstate Northern Ireland employee Paul Heatley has raised £800 for Prostate Cancer UK by holding companywide awareness sessions for employees.

In 2014, Paul, an Application Developer at Allstate NI, entered into the company's Dragon's Den competition to compete for seed money in a bid to make his idea a reality. The Dragons' Den initiative was set up in 2013 to engage even more Allstate NI employees in social entrepreneurship to make a difference in their local communities.

Employees were asked to enter via an application process as individuals or groups and the best ideas were then invited into the Dragons' Den. Each project had to feature an element of employee volunteering and was required to detail how other employees would be encouraged to get involved.

Paul's proposal was to roll out a series of prostate cancer awareness sessions throughout Allstate NI to raise awareness about the illness as well as raise funds for the UK charity. Paul's father had previously been diagnosed with prostate cancer so it was a cause very close to his heart. With prostate cancer being the most common cancer for men in the UK, Paul believed that it would be beneficial to promote awareness of the illness to employees.

Ten projects, including Paul's, were successful in 2014 and were given money to carry out the proposed schemes. Winners were also given management and marketing support to help with their initiatives, as well as time off to work on the projects.

Since 2014 Paul has successfully completed the full roll out of prostate cancer awareness sessions, in tandem with Prostate Cancer UK, to all three Allstate NI offices in Belfast, L'Derry and Strabane. All sessions were well attended and raised £800.00 for the charity.

42,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the UK yet it is a very treatable illness if detected early. For more information visit
