Prostate Cancer UK To Be At Deepdale Tomorrow

31 March 2017

Preston North End will be welcoming the EFL’s official charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK to Deepdale for tomorrow's game.

An army of volunteers will be collecting funds outside the ground and with the funds raised, North End fans will be helping to stop the most common cancer in men being a killer.

As well as supporting the charity at tomorrow's game, PNE boss Simon Grayson will once again be taking on the biggest ride in football for Prostate Cancer's 'Football to Amsterdam ride.

Grayson, who completed the 2014 ride for the leading men’s health charity, will join former England stars Les Ferdinand and Terry Butcher in the fifth annual Football to Amsterdam ride in conjunction with the EFL from 9th-11th June.

For a second time, the 46-year-old will ride 145 miles in honour of his late friend Steve ‘Garby’ Garbett, who passed away from the disease in September 2014.

The gaffer's funds raised for the planned ride in June will accompany his fundraising efforts from his charity ball recently which raised a huge £42,000 on the night.

For information about taking part in the 2017 ride go to prostatecanceruk.org/amsterdam or contact the cycling team by calling 020 8222 7158 or emailing cycling@prostatecanceruk.org.
