DAN’S STORY

I’m Dan Silver and I founded Dash of Silver with the help of family and friends after having my own personal battle with testicular cancer in July 2009.
Receiving the diagnosis that you have cancer is the worst feeling in the world and it is soul destroying, although the news that you have beaten it is the best feeling.
To be here to have this charity in my name is humbling and I’m extremely proud be championing this cause.

HAVE YOU DONE YOUR MONTHLY SELF-EXAM?

LET’S PLAY BALL
1 in 3 men don’t know about the importance of performing self-exams and 42% of men don’t know how to perform a self-examination. Spread the word with your friends and download the self exam card.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

We rely on donations to keep the charity afloat, and sponsors to help us with the care packs that we deliver to the hospital to men who find themselves going through treatment for cancer. 

DONATE

COLLECTION TUBS

These are located throughout the city for you to throw your spare change into. If you would consider having one in your shop please contact us to arrange.

EVENTS

Every year we organise a Dash Ball, however due to COVID-19 it has been postponed for 2020, but we will be announcing revised plans for this event and others for 2021. 

SPONSORSHIP

You can also sponsor an event or donate products for our care packs. We will ensure that your company is marketed in return for your valued support. 

FUND RAISE

If  you are looking for a local charity to support please consider us. Many of our beneficiaries who beat cancer also go on to raise money for us to ‘give back’ which is greatly appreciated.

NEWS

There are many ways in which we help men and their journey with cancer, but we can’t do it without your help. From fundraising events that we organise to raising money yourselves with Dash of Silver being your chosen charity, the battle is ongoing. Here’s some of the news stories, but for regular updates see our social media pages.
