Prostate Cancer UK in focus at The Den this Saturday

Read all about it...

30 August 2019

Millwall welcome Hull City to The Den in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm) - with charity Prostate Cancer UK coming into focus.

Next week, Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling will embark on another epic walking challenge for Prostate Cancer UK – spanning four countries in four days – and is calling on the help of the public to support him on his quest to help beat prostate cancer – a disease killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK. The finale leg of his challenge will be stopping here at The Den, after leaving from the London Stadium and going via The Valley before then heading to The Emirates and finishing at Tottenham Hotspur.

Ahead of his unbelievable challenge, The Lions are supporting Prostate Cancer UK at this weekend’s game, with a matchday collection to support Jeff’s efforts. You can donate to Jeff’s March by donating at the game or visiting prostatecanceruk.org/jeffsmarch to sponsor Jeff.

After completing 25 walking marathons in 2016 and 2017, raising close to £800,000, Jeff is back for 2019 - and with the help of some famous footballing faces, aims to march through the £1m fundraising barrier as he travels to Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and London from 5-8 September.

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with one man dying every 45 minutes from this disease. That’s unacceptable, and that’s why I’m walking again,” said Jeff, who wears the Prostate Cancer UK Man of Men pin badge, together with the panellists, every week on Soccer Saturday.

“It’s an indiscriminate disease, affecting men and their loved ones across the UK. I’ve walked alongside many of them and am proud to call some my friends. Their reaction and positive outlook despite being dealt the toughest of hands is simply unbelievable. I’m marching for them – and everyone affected – in a bid to fund the research to change the game.

“I live in England and work in London, but the wonderful work of Prostate Cancer UK stretches into Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, so I will be pounding the pavements in four historic cities – and it wouldn’t be a football march without popping in on some iconic football clubs along the way.”
