Supporters attending Non-League Day can help raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK

Football fans up and down the country are being encouraged to #WearTheWig in support of Prostate Cancer UK and Non-League Day this weekend.

After a successful ‘Thumbs Up For Non-League Day’ last year that raised £7,735, National League sponsors Vanarama are back again to pledge their support with a number of ticket pledges to raise money and boost attendances.

#WearTheWig aims to boost the cause by encouraging personalities and teams and fans to get involved for Prostate Cancer UK.

“Men United is about men joining together to fight a common opponent – prostate cancer,” said James Beeby, director of fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK.

“One man dies every hour from this disease but it’s been proven by taking this issue to football terraces up and down the land that we are starting to make a difference.

“The power of football consistently helps us reach out to men and their friends and families, and we are very grateful for the continued backing from Vanarama as we continue to raise money and awareness throughout the grassroots game in innovative ways.

“By teaming up with us once more they will play a vital role in saving lives.”
