Good Cause

Who'd have thought that pants could serve a higher purpose than just looking sexy on someone's little tush? Well Pants People knows a thing or two about how amazing undies are, which is why we've teamed up with an equally amazing charity.

Our pledge is simple. We'll give 25p to The Prostate Cancer Charity for every pair of pants sold on our website.

Therefore the more pants you buy from us, the more we'll donate to this cause which affects a considerable number of men every year.


The Prostate Cancer Charity is the UK’s leading charity working with people affected by prostate cancer.

Key Facts

  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK.
  • 35,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the UK.
  • One man dies every hour of prostate cancer in the UK.

In England men have a 1 in 11 lifetime risk of getting prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer affects almost as many men as breast cancer affects women. There are 35,000 men diagnosed every year with prostate cancer compared to 44,000 women with breast cancer. 10,000 men die of prostate cancer every year; 12,000 women die of breast cancer each year.

Risk Factors

  • Age: over 85% of prostate cancer cases are diagnosed in men over 60.
  • Ethnicity: African Caribbean men are three times more likely to develop prostate cancer than white men.
  • Family: you are 2.5 times more likely to develop prostate cancer if your father or brother has had it.
  • Diet: if you have a diet rich in fat, dairy products and red meat, this may increase your risk of developing prostate cancer (and other health conditions).
