Shakers pledge support to Prostate Cancer UK
Bury Football Club has pledged support to Prostate Cancer UK, as part of their Men United campaign; a contribution to a season of saving men’s lives in support of The Football League’s Official Charity Partnership.
As a club we have vowed to play our part with a special bucket collection at today's game to raise awareness and funds for the services of Prostate Cancer UK. There will be PCUK collectors around the ground collecting any form of donation that fans wish to give to this fantastic cause. There will also be various forms of awareness campaigns for the illness and PCUK positioned around the ground.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, killing more than 10,000 men in the UK alone every year. It’s vital that all men know about the illness, which is why we are playing our part along with hundreds of other clubs throughout the English Leagues in getting the message out there to as many males as possible – all through the football community and beyond.
Bury fan Colin Stott who has been watching the Shakers for over 50 years will be leading the teams out of the tunnel as part of the day's campaign of raising awareness, as Colin himself has been battling Prostate Cancer for 7 years and has strong connections with support work for the illness being Vice Chairman of the Bolton and Bury Prostate Cancer Support Group. We hope we can give Colin the amazing display of admiration that he deserves.
So please dig deep today in order to raise awareness and support the services of Prostate Cancer UK's 'Men United' campaign.
