U's Back Prostate Cancer UK

12 April 2016

Join us for Men's Health Day against Luton

Oxford United’s home game against Luton Town this Saturday will be helping to raise awareness and raise the profile of a range of issues for Men’s Health Day.

There will be a host of walking sports and a particular focus on raising money and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK, official Charity Partners of the Football League.
 
U’s fans get the chance to  ‘Look Sharp, Be Smart’ ahead of the game with a barber ready to cut and style people’s hair for the following prices, all of which will go to Prostate Cancer:

•         Men’s Cut - £10
•         Beard Design - £4.50
•         Women’s Cut or Up-Do - £15.

There will information cards about Prostate Cancer in every match programme, bucket collectors all around the ground, and Man of Men lapel pin badges available for purchase for £1.50.

Sky TV’s Jeff Stelling walked from his beloved Hartlepool to Wembley to help raise awareness on Prostate Cancer. After walking ten marathons in ten days he said:

“Prostate Cancer UK should be a charity close to every man’s heart because we know, or we should know, just how vulnerable we are. I like my statistics – but the ones I’m dealing with here are shocking. One in eight men will get prostate cancer, and one in four if you are black, it’s a scary thought.

“Within the next ten years Prostate Cancer UK believes they will find the answers to ensure the disease is something men and their loved ones no longer fear. I’ve met the scientists who pledge to do this and I can see how dedicated they are.

“Prostate cancer is not discerning, but it can be treated if caught soon enough. It doesn’t just hit the bad guys; it’s the good guys as well.
