PLAY YOUR PART AGAINST PROSTATE CANCER

22 February 2017

Play your part in the fight against prostate cancer

Get involved and show your support for Prostate Cancer UK when the Gills face Southend this Saturday, February 25.

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. 

February 25 will be the Gills’ official Men United Match of Action for Prostate Cancer UK, and we need your support! Volunteers will be collecting funds around the ground before the game, so please give generously.  

If you can’t make it on the day, you can still support this important cause by donating online via our JustGiving page:  www.justgiving.com/fundraising/MenUnited2017Gillingham  

The Gills have set a target to raise £1,400 – an important step towards the total Men United Match Days target of £75,000. With the money raised by our Match of Action, Gills fans will be joining the fight to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.



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 our Match of Action, you’re playing your part in saving men’s lives.
