SCOTLAND rugby star Zander Fagerson is backing a new charity coffee blend in support of Testicular Cancer Awareness Month and charity Cahonas

The Glasgow Warriors and British and Irish Lions squad member was spotted at The Good Coffee Cartel in Glasgow this week.

He was there to launch a new coffee which will raise money for Cahonas, Scotland’s Testicular Cancer education, awareness and support charity. It is hoped the new Cahonas Blend, produced by Glasgow coffee shop and roastery The Good Coffee Cartel, will raise much needed funds for the charity and their life saving work.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer amongst men aged 15 to 45, with six men diagnosed every day – that’s more than 2,400 men a year. But if it is caught early, the survival rate for testicular cancer is an incredible 96 per cent.


Rugby star Zander Fagerson said: “I’m a coffee enthusiast, so I was delighted to be asked to come and help with the launch of this coffee in support of Cahonas and Testicular Can cer Awareness Month”

Zander, 27, says: “I have had a personal scare with a lump. Time went on and it was still sore so I got it checked. Fortunately, it turned out to be just a bad bruise from a burst blood vessel.”

“But that gave me a bit of a fright, so now I make sure I check myself regularly.”

“I have since met some amazing people through Cahonas who have had testicular cancer and found it early enough to get treated and went on to live their lives and start families.

“You can see the massive impact testicular cancer has on young men in Scotland but Cahonas helps raise awareness about it.”
