Logo to be displayed on shirts vs. Hull
Huddersfield Town will proudly display the logo of Football League charity partner Prostate Cancer UK on their chests when they take on Hull City in npower Championship action on Saturday 30 March.
The Club is using the Yorkshire derby with the Tigers to support the charity and midfielder Adam Clayton gave htafc.com a preview of what the logo looks like on the famous blue and white stripes.
After the game the shirts will be auctioned off on Town’s official eBay account, with proceeds being donated to Prostate Cancer UK.
The Club’s official match day magazine, Give Us An H, will also carry the story of Town fan Kevin Rowbottom, who has recovered from Prostate Cancer.
Prostate Cancer is a disease that kills 10,000 men every year - that's one man every hour – and the number of men with the disease is rising at an alarming rate.
While it is already the most common cancer in men, prostate cancer is predicted to become the most common cancer of all in the UK by 2030.
Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens commented:
“I believe that Prostate Cancer UK is a very worthy cause for the entire Football League to support this season, as football’s core demographic is also the major risk group for this disease.
“Here at Huddersfield Town, we are delighted to throw our support behind the campaign to raise awareness of the condition. It’s scary to think that in the time it takes for one of our fans to walk through our turnstiles, watch the match and leave the ground, two men will have died from Prostate Cancer somewhere in the UK and anything we can do to help combat this illness is a positive.
“Hopefully this League-wide campaign can have a positive impact on the research and support of the charity.”
On top of the Club’s support for Prostate Cancer UK, there will be plenty more happening on the day when the live Sky TV cameras visit. Eight brave cyclists undertaking the Club’s ‘Pedal for Pounds 4’ bike ride will complete a practise run from London at the Stadium (click HERE
