Scholes Shows Support To Prostate Cancer UK

5 August 2014

Commercial manager Jenny Warburton recently attended a Prostate Cancer UK media launch involving former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes.

Scholes, who modelled Latics' new away shirt during the launch last week, was supporting Prostate Cancer UK who are the official charity partner of the Football League.

Oldham Athletic had a picture of Scholes holding the Men United jersey commissioned by Kyle Jagger for the Prostate Cancer UK charity. The midfielder signed a copy of the picture which will be auctioned off to kickstart the fundraising for Oldham's 2015 London to Amsterdam challenge in aid of the charity. Jenny, who completed the 150 mile bike ride in June has already signed up for the next event. 

"It was a challenging but fantastic two days. I surprised myself at how well I did, managing to finish in the top half of the 150 participants and raise £2,500 for the cause. I have spoken with the organisers at Prostate Cancer UK who believe that next year's challenge will be even bigger than this year with a predicted 300 people taking part!"  

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men but it is set to become the most common cancer overall by 2030. 

Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the UK. There are currently 250,000 men living with or after the disease.
One was donated to the charity, whilst the other picture will be auctioned off to raise money for next year's London to Amsterdam bike ride.

Full details about the auction will be on the official website later this month.
