Fulham match to celebrate Club’s support for Get to know cancer

Posted on 1 April 2014  - 11:00

This season the Club has been proudly supporting the NHS campaign ‘Get to know cancer’, actively promoting awareness and early detection of cancer symptoms amongst fans and the local community.

We are pleased to announce that our Premier League fixture against Fulham on Saturday, April 19, will be dedicated to ‘Get to know cancer’, celebrating the success of the campaign’s activities with the Club to date.

For this game only, our players will wear special edition match shirts carrying the ‘Get to know cancer’ logo.

Exclusive match-worn shirts will later be signed by the players and auctioned off to raise money for six cancer charities that have played an integral role in the Club’s ‘Get to know cancer’ activities this season. These include:

• CoppaFeel!

• Cancer Research UK

• The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation

• Beating Bowel Cancer

• Bowel Cancer UK

• Ovarian Cancer Action

Throughout the campaign, the ‘Get to know cancer’ market stall and its volunteers have been present at Premier League home matches every month, working to educate fans on the symptoms of cancer and how to spot them.

Our players and ambassadors have also been getting involved to help raise awareness of cancer and the importance of early diagnosis.

Highlights have included the launch of a six-week pop-up drop-in clinic in Tottenham opened by Kyle Walker; Ledley King taking part in Movember, with the first ever public moustache-shaving at White Hart Lane; Mousa Dembele supporting the launch of revolutionary cancer screening equipment at North Middlesex Hospital; and Spurs Ladies working with breast cancer charity CoppaFeel, encouraging young women from the local area to regularly check for symptoms. 

We would like to understand how successful the Club’s work with ‘Get to know cancer’ has been in achieving its aim of raising awareness of cancer symptoms and promoting early diagnosis amongst fans.
