FANS DIG DEEP TO TAKE ON CANCER
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.”
