Today we’re delighted to welcome Prostate Cancer UK to the Wham Stadium for today’s home game with Grimsby Town.

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

Since Prostate Cancer UK’s Official Charity Partnership with the EFL was announced back in 2012 the charity has raised over £2m which will go towards the charity’s ten year strategy to tame prostate cancer.

The football community has a big part to play. Whether it’s 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. 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer, while the odds for black men are just 1 in 4.

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