Lease a car, be a star


BREAKING NEWS - In a historic move for English football, the National League has re-branded itself the MANarama National League until Non-League Day on 13th October. This show of support comes in the same week Prostate Cancer UK and the National League partnered up, and Vanarama (Motorama's sister-brand) renamed itself MANarama.

45 days to raise £150K for Prostate Cancer UK...

Welcome to Motorama’s “45 days to £150K for Prostate Cancer UK” content hub – we’ll be keeping this page updated with everything we do to achieve our fundraising goal, and if you just want to donate head to our Just Giving page.

Why donate?

More than 11,800 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year – that's one man every 45 minutes. Prostate Cancer UK’s ambition is to stop men dying from the disease by raising enough money to help shift the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support.

How are we raising the money?

And that’s why the whole Autorama Group (Motorama, Vanarama and Pickup Trucks Direct) has set itself a 45-day challenge to raise £150,000 for the charity – in partnership with the National League.

We’re going to donate £50 to the charity every time we lease a van from now until Non-League Day on the 13th October*. So, lease a car and be a star, or donate and make a difference to men and their families across the UK.
