XK Club Round Britain Coastal Drive
Round Britain Coastal Drive, Supporting Prostate Cancer UK
We were delighted with the support for our Round Britain Coastal Drives!
Whether you joined us on the Drives, helped us achieve the fundraising total - or both - thank you!
We have now raised over £250,000 for Prostate Cancer UK!
Having completed the fourth RBCD this Autumn, we are reflecting on what has been a triumphant series of epic drives around the coast of Britain.
Philip Porter, author, publisher and co-founder of our Clubs devised the Round Britain Coastal Drive shortly after recovering from prostate cancer, and the event has become an excellent way to raise awareness of the disease, and funds for Prostate Cancer UK.
Fundraising has now surpassed £250,000, a total of which we are very proud. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of you who have supported us either by taking part in the event, raising funds or sharing details of the JustGiving fundraising page.
Philip's inspiration for the RBCD would never have come to fruition without such wonderful support from our members across the globe and without the dedication of our team here at HQ – few in number, but mighty in deed! The logistics, both in terms of organisation and in terms of staff crisscrossing the country to host various stages, has always been a massive task, and this year proved especially challenging – one reason why we have decided, with heavy hearts, to bring the RBCD to a close.
Furthermore, despite the massive support for the event, the number of cars on the Drive has dropped considerably and we have realised that after four years, the event has run its course. All of the Club team have been very loyal to Prostate Cancer UK and have formed excellent working relationships with its representatives and have thoroughly enjoyed working with them.
"Thanks to the fabulous planning and organisation of the XK club team and to our friends, families and colleagues for your generous donations to Prostate Cancer we have well exceeded our target."

"Thanks to all of you who made the event so special. It would have been impossible without your organisation and smiling faces."
