Show Your Support For Prostate Cancer UK

26 February 2016

Club's Designated Fixture Against Bradford City

Blackpool's game against Bradford City tomorrow has been selected as the club's designated fixture in support of Prostate Cancer UK.

Volunteers on behalf of the Football League's official charity partner will hold a bucket collection at Bloomfield Road prior to kick-off, to raise valuable funds and awareness.   

Prostate Cancer UK is the UK's largest men's health charity and it aims to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life.
 
Prostate Cancer affects one in eight men in their lifetime, and the charity is looking for more people to raise money in the fight against the disease.

"I’m proud to wear the charity pin badge to help raise awareness and I hope supporters of both clubs show their appreciation as well," Blackpool manager Neil McDonald said.

"It's great to see the wealth of support for the charity throughout football in this country, and I'd like to commend the volunteers for their dedication to the cause." 

Away from Bloomfield Road, Sky Sports Soccer Saturday presenter Jeff Stelling is preparing to walk 10 marathons in 10 days for the charity.

Starting out at his beloved Hartlepool United, Stelling will be kicking-off the epic 262-miler on Monday 21 March and will bring it to an end when he reaches Wembley Stadium.
