Blackburn Rovers boss urges fans to support prostate cancer charity
12:13pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
BLACKBURN Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has urged fans to support Prostate Cancer UK during tomorrow’s home match against Charlton.
The charity has launched a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of the disease and given fans the chance to represent their ‘Men United’ team, while walking out as official mascots for their club.
Matthew McDonough, 22, from Baxenden, has won the chance to lead out Rovers tomorrow.
There will also be volunteers collecting outside turnstiles, as well as adverts and features appearing on the official club website and matchday programme.
Bowyer said: “The players and I urge fans to give generously to Prostate Cancer UK volunteers on the day.
“We know men need to wake up to prostate cancer and give a good fight, that’s why we are all behind this movement for men’s health.”
