The Non-League Football Paper - - NEWS -

NON-LEAGUE Day may have been and gone for an­other year, but the money keeps rolling in for Prostate Cancer UK. Seven Non-League clubs helped raise over £2,800 on Oc­to­ber 7 by trans­form­ing their club­house to Men United Arms pubs, and en­cour­ag­ing do­na­tions through fans. Dar­ling­ton, Sut­ton United, main pic­ture, and Weald­stone all wel­comed the ini­tia­tive along with Corinthian Ca­su­als, Hal­lam, Mick­leover Sports, in­set, and Shep­pey United. The to­tal amount raised is yet to be to­talled but Prostate Cancer di­rec­tor of fundrais­ing James Beeby praised the ef­fort of fans. He said: “The power of foot­ball con­sis­tently helps us reach out to men and their friends and fam­i­lies, and we are very grate­ful for all the sup­port from clubs on Non-League Day as we con­tinue to raise money and aware­ness through­out the grass­roots game in in­no­va­tive ways. “We’re de­lighted once again that Non-League fans joined the fight against prostate cancer and raised vi­tal funds for Prostate Cancer UK. “The money raised will fund ground-break­ing re­search to help fight the dis­ease. That will help us pro­vide ded­i­cated sup­port and in­for­ma­tion to men and their fam­i­lies af­fected by this dis­ease.”
