Astra supports a great cause… ‘It’s in the Bag’ Anniversary Testicular Ball


In 2009, It’s in the Bag started out as a very small charity fund as part of Above and Beyond charity, helping to raise awareness of testicular cancer in the South West of England. In September 2015 they broke away from their overarching charity and became independent. This year marks their 10th anniversary, and to celebrate this, the charity will be hosting a prestigious Testicular Ball at the Bristol Grammar School, in its iconic Great Hall. 

The event will take place on Saturday 12th October and is sponsored by Astra Security.  It promises to be spectacular, with Live Entertainment from band Twisted Vinyl, Welcome drink, Dinner and a truly special Golden Pants Awards ceremony. And of course, it’s all in support of a great cause.

It's in the Bag - The Charity

The charity provides hands on support for men with testicular cancer in the South West, as well as raising awareness of the disease across the region and beyond. It’s run by a group of testicular cancer survivors with support from specialist NHS staff. 

Sue Brand, Founder and an expert in testicular cancer explained ‘This is the biggest event in our calendar, and promises to be a great celebration of the last 10 years – bringing together all those people who have supported the charity since we set it up.  I’d like to say a big thank you to Astra Security for being involved and for supporting us once again.  It’s so important to raise awareness of this disease.’ Astra supported our very first ball and it seems appropriate that they are supporting this one.

Paul Beet, Managing Director for Astra Security said ‘Supporting local charities is so important, we all know someone who may be impacted by cancer, and the work that It’s in the Bag do across the South West is amazing.  They always manage to get a serious message across in a fun way.  We’re delighted to be supporting the Anniversary Ball, hope it’s a great success’.
