Pete has supported It’s in the Bag from the very start, from being part of the Magnificent 7 to being the Chair of the Steering Group that paved the way to us becoming an independent charity. Pete now donates his time as our devices guru.
Having experienced testicular cancer first hand, I can remember quite vividly the feelings of isolation, depression and being plain scared out of my wits. What I really wanted was to be able to talk to, and share experiences with, others who had actually been through the same journey. Today, Its in the Bag provides this, and also a range of brilliant support services, and I am honoured to keep supporting such a worthwhile and valued charity.
Thank you Pete from all at IITB

Dan Speich from the Graphic Mill was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer and approached us to see if there was any way in which he could help. As we always try to keep our costs down, we are particularly grateful for Dan’s support and his briliant design skills!
Dan says: “The Graphic Mill supports It’s in the Bag as they wanted to support a local charity in a way that they felt could make a real difference. As a small local business the team wanted to support a charity with a similar ethos and a light hearted approach. It’s in the bag seemed the obvious choice as a member of the team had been diagnosed with TC in 2014 and received support from the charity throughout his treatment and recovery. The Graphic Mill provides It’s in the Bag with banners and portable displays for fundraising and awareness events as well as providing support with graphic production and design.”
Sue Brand and Pete Styles met with Will Long from Out of Hand in February 2012 and since then the relationship has become a fruitful one. Not only do Out of Hand give us huge discount, they print our awareness cards almost for FREE and distribute our materials to universities that they supply in the South West. They also help us to keep our design and branding fresh and strong.
Recently, Out of Hand helped us to design our generic medical information leaflets for patients throughout the South West of England. Again, helping to keep our images strong and appealing for our age group, the leaflets are clear and informative. We have had feedback from men Plymouth and Exeter that the packs are so helpful.
It’s in the Bag have two store rooms, one for all our equipment and one for our merchandise. These store rooms are at Big Yellow Self-Storage Company in Bristol Ashton Gate. Lee and his team give us huge discounts and sometimes weeks entirely FREE!
Big Yellow is the UK’s favourite self-storage company and provide a range of secure storage rooms for homes and businesses which can be accessed seven days a week. Big Yellow have provided us with free storage space, allowing us a safe working environment to collect, store and sort through all our merchandise, awareness materials and event equipment.
Thank you Big Yellow.
Paul Beet, Managing Director for Astra Security said :-
“Supporting local charities is an important part of our ethos at Astra Security.
We all know someone who has been impacted by cancer, whether that be friends, family or work colleagues, and how it can turn your life upside down. This charity does amazing work across the South West. What’s unique about them is that they always manage to get a serious message across in a fun way, and that’s very special.
We’re delighted to have supported the charity since it was first launched, and we wish them ongoing success for their future initiatives.”
We are very lucky to have the support of the Aztec Hotel & Spa.
The staff have been instrumental in providing the venue for the Survivorship Toolkit days and Personal Development Weekends at such a great price. Thanks to the hotel, attendees of the sessions have full use of the facilities have use of the facilities, which help to make it a truly special experience.
As we don’t have our own office space, Aztec Hotel & Spa also allow us to hold our team meetings there for free. This generosity is very much appreciated, thank you.
Jellibaby have been instrumental in designing our new stationary, Spooky Ball images and fundraising kit. Working with Jacquie Dean has been a joy and she has helped us to explore different design options and kept costs to a minimum.
Thank you Jellibaby for your continue support of It’s in the Bag.
Bristol Beer Factory contacted It’s in the Bag in November 2014 to ask if we would like to be their Charity of the Year and of course we said yes! Sue met with Simon Bartlett co founder and MD, to see what they had planned for the year. The first event, a fashion show with a difference to launch their new t-shirts at Steak of the Art in May 2015, kick-started the relationship.
