Derby County and club partner Prostate Cancer UK were delighted that more than 20,000 supporters tuned in to RamsTV coverage for Saturday’s important home win over Middlesbrough across club channels.
Goals from strikers Lee Gregory and Colin Kazim-Richards fired Wayne Rooney’s side to a deserved 2-1 victory at Pride Park Stadium.
Rooney and members of his coaching staff, as well as RamsTV presenter Owen Bradley and guest pundit Shaun Barker, donned Prostate Cancer UK’s iconic ‘Man of Men’ pin badge to show their support during the fixture
Prostate Cancer UK were unable to host a traditional matchday collection due to the match being played behind closed doors, but the charity’s life-saving work was still featured on RamsTV as part of a ‘Matchday Takeover’, helping to highlight the importance of understanding your risk of prostate cancer.
Thanks to the text to donate option available to Derby supporters, it helped to raise much-needed funds for continuing Prostate Cancer UK’s efforts to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
If you missed the opportunity to donate to Prostate Cancer UK’s ground-breaking research and drive improvements in treatment, there’s still time.
Just text RAMS to 70004 to donate £5 to help stop prostate cancer being a killer and claim a FREE 'Man of Men' pin badge.
About Prostate Cancer
Most men with early prostate cancer don’t have any symptoms, which is why Prostate Cancer UK is encouraging men most at risk to speak to their GP. This includes men over 50, while black men and those with a family history of the disease should consider speaking to their doctor earlier, from the age of 45.
And to help men find out whether they are at increased risk of developing the disease, Prostate Cancer UK has launched an online risk checker, available at prostatecanceruk.org/riskchecker where Rams supporters can check their own risk in 30 seconds.
