Help Raise Money For Prostate Cancer UK Against Sheffield United

10 April 2015

Tomorrow marks the club's annual Prostate Cancer UK day as we raise vital money for the Football League's official charity partner.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Prostate cancer accounts for a quarter of all new cancer cases in men in the UK.

In 2011 in the UK around 41,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, that's more than 110 every day. 

Over the last 35 years prostate cancer rates in Great Britain have more than tripled, although much of the increase is due to increased detection through widespread use of the PSA test.

Booket collectors will be situated around the ground so please dig deep into your pockets and let's raise as much money for the charity as we can. 

Also, this summer, five Oldham Athletic representatives will embark on the annual London to Amsterdam bike ride to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

Commercial manager Jenny Warburton will captain the team and will once again be joined by her partner, Scott Jagger. 

The pair will be joined by supporters Rob Stockford  and Rick Wallis and the club's safety officer Bryan Lawton on their journey.

The five will cycle 145 miles over two days in order to raise vital funds and awareness for the Football League's official charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK.

They start their journey at Leyton Orient's Matchroom Stadium and finish their bike ride at Ajax's Amsterdam Arena. 

Men United is Prostate Cancer UK's movement for everyone who believes men are worth fighting for and joining the London to Amsterdam ride offers the chance for friends to do something great together and help to beat prostate cancer.

Last year's event was hailed a huge success, with a squad of more than 150 riders helping to raise over £200,000.

The club must raise at least £5,000 so please dig deep to help them reach their goal. 

To support Jenny and her team on the ride, please visit to donate to this worthy cause.

Alternatively, you can also donate by texting OAFC95 followed by your amount to 70070. (Eg. OAFC95 £10 to 70070)
