Efforts Raise Vital Funds

Blackpool FC's support for The Football League's official charity, Prostate Cancer UK and the Men United campaign, has raised a considerable amount of money this season.

A bucket collection at the game against AFC Bournemouth saw supporters donate a total of £781.07, which was boosted to £944.49 by a further donation from the Royal Mail.

Further to this, Gareth Godfrey Brown from the club's Gold Bond department completed the Virgin London marathon in aid of the charity and received more than £3,000 in sponsorship.

The fundraising efforts were topped off over the weekend when Business Development Manager John Woodman particpated in a charity cycle from London to Amsterdam. His sponsorship total currently stands at £1,976. 

Prostate cancer kills over 10,000 men a year in the UK, with Prostate Cancer UK on track to raise over £250,000 across The Football League this season to help save more men's lives and improve their quality of life. For further information about Prostate Cancer UK, please visit prostatecanceruk.org
