FANS DIG DEEP TO TAKE ON CAN­CER

The Football League Paper - - CHRIS DUNLAVY - By John Lyons

WARM-HEARTED fans from across the EFL have raised more than £11,000 in the fight against prostate can­cer.

Match-day col­lec­tions were held at 11 clubs as part of a con­tin­ued pro­gramme of events with the of­fi­cial char­ity part­ner of the EFL, Prostate Can­cer UK.

The 11 that took part this time around were Mill­wall, Ful­ham, Barns­ley, Bradford, Northamp­ton, Bury, Wi­gan, Coven­try, Lu­ton, Wy­combe and For­est Green.

Among the clubs that raised the most were Mill­wall with £2,500, Ful­ham with £1,600 and Bradford with £1,100.

The funds will go to­wards im­prov­ing di­ag­no­sis, treat­ment, pre­ven­tion and sup­port to ul­ti­mately help stop prostate can­cer be­ing a killer.

James Beeby, di­rec­tor of fundrais­ing at Prostate Can­cer UK, said: “One man dies ev­ery 45 min­utes from this dis­ease. That’s two men dur­ing a foot­ball match, so we’re grate­ful once again that EFL fans have joined the fight against prostate can­cer.”
