PINK: We're Supporting Breast Cancer Care
Durham Women FC are delighted to be supporting Breast Cancer Care over the upcoming week - culminating with activities at our game against Sunderland on Thursday.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Wildcats be supporting Breast Cancer Care in their work to help support people living with Breast Cancer.
All week, our social media channels will be turned pink while our match day programme against Sunderland will be pink throughout.
On the evening of the match itself, we will be holding bucket collections to raise vital funds to allow Breast Cancer Care to continue their excellent work.
Our players will all warm up in Breast Cancer Care t-shirts while our mascot, Candy, will also proudly display the charity’s logo.
General Manager Lee Sanders said: “I think it’s really important that we’re able to support great causes like this.
“It’s something that’s affected a number of players and staff’s families at the club, both in the past and more recent times.
“We would love everybody to support anything that goes on at the game against Sunderland and donate where they can.
“It’s an important charity to get behind and the people who do work in it do a tremendous job.”
Alec Raven, Head of Community Fundraising at Breast Cancer Care, added: “We’re so grateful to Durham Women FC for holding a community event in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
“The money raised will help Breast Cancer Care to continue to provide free services including; support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there, welcoming online forums, reliable information and local group support.
“691,000 people are living with a breast cancer diagnosis in the UK today, and that figure is only set to grow. With support from people like Durham Women FC, we can be here for more people, whenever they need us.”
