Grimsby Ancient Mariners Raise £3,000 for Prostate Cancer UK
GRIMSBY ANCIENT MARINERS WALKING FOOTBALL CLUB HAVE RAISED AN INCREDIBLE £3,000 FOR PROSTATE CANCER UK
The walking football club, who have over 100+ active members playing twice a week at Bradley Development Centre, produced a charity calendar which saw players bare all in photoshoots at famous places in Grimsby and Cleethorpes, including Blundell Park, Freeman Street Market, and a photography studio. The club managed to bolster the fund by securing 12 monthly sponsors from businesses in the local area.
To bring the project to a close, the club have decided on a charity football match between Grimsby Ancient Mariners and a GTFC Mariners Trust Select XI at the King George Stadium in Grimsby on Wednesday 19 February – 2:00pm KO. The format will be four separate quarters alternating between walking football and ‘normal football’.
While it is already the most common cancer in men, prostate cancer is predicted to become the most prevalent of all cancers in the UK by 2030. Prostate Cancer UK fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. The money GAMWFC have raised will go a long way to support Prostate Cancer UK in continuing the amazing work they do.
Well done to all at Grimsby Ancient Mariners Walking Football Club - a really fantastic effort from a fantastic community group!
