BLUES BACKING PROSTATE CANCER UK

8 April 2017

Show your support at today's game

Pompey are delighted to welcome Prostate Cancer UK to Fratton Park today.

Volunteers will be collecting funds outside the ground, so please give generously. With the money raised, fans will be joining the fight to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.

Blues boss Paul Cook said: It’s a fantastic cause, so please give generously to the bucket collections and join the fight against this terrible disease."

Since Prostate Cancer UK’s Official Charity Partnership with the EFL was announced back in 2012, the charity have raised more than £2 million, which will go towards the charity’s 10-year strategy to tame prostate cancer.

The football community has a big part to play. Whether it is fans donating their change, footballers wearing the man of men logo within their shirt numbers or managers donning the pin badge – it all makes a big difference. 

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. One in eight men will get prostate cancer, while the odds for black men are just one in four. 

By donating and supporting today you’re playing your part in saving men’s lives.
