Roy Raises Thousands!

11 April 2021

Matchday Press Officer and 'Latics Legend' Roy Butterworth has reached another milestone for local cancer charity Maggie’s Oldham.

Proceeds from his self-published book 'A Fan On The Inside' have been donated to the centre, who support people with cancer and their family and friends in Oldham, Tameside, Rochdale and beyond.

Roy has been able to donate an incredible £2,000 from hundreds of book sales, which show no sign of slowing down.

A club spokesperson from the club said: "It’s fantastic to see Roy’s book continue to raise funds for Maggie’s.

"He’s a big part of this football club and continues to have an impact, going above and beyond in everything he does.

"He loves the club and the town and will take great pride in being able to share his stories whilst helping a worthwhile cause. Well done, Roy and thank you for always keeping the faith!"

Whilst, Trish Morgan Centre Head at Maggie’s Oldham, said: "We are really grateful to Roy for thinking of us. He is a credit to Oldham Athletic and a credit to the town of Oldham.

"His amazing contribution means we can continue to offer vital support for people with cancer when they need us most."
