KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have announced their official charity partner for the coming season.
The Aggborough outfit will link up with Prostate Cancer UK from next month, (August) with the players posing in special charity shirts during the traditional team picture.
The partnership will also see Harriers stage a Men United matchday, which calls for men to join together to fight against prostate cancer, where it will collect money to raise awareness for the charity.
Matt Wall, the club’s media officer, said: “Kidderminster Harriers are delighted to have the opportunity to join the good work being done by Prostate Cancer UK as our nominated charity for the season.
“They’ve already achieved great things in terms of raising awareness of prostate cancer and through the Men United campaign we’re very excited about doing our bit.
“We’d urge all Harriers fans to join Men United today. It takes just a few minutes to sign up and complete a brief quiz and every number counts.
“We look forward to welcoming the Prostate Cancer UK team to Aggborough throughout the coming campaign.”
During the season, Prostate Cancer UK’s Man of Men symbol will be included on every player’s kit as part of the individual's squad number.
Mark Bishop, the charity’s director of fundraising, said: “Up and down the country our work within football is really gathering momentum and it’s fantastic to welcome Kidderminster Harriers into the fold.
“It’s great to see a club rooted in its community want to make a difference to men’s health, not just on behalf of its own fans but actually on behalf of all men across the country.
“As more clubs at all levels come together under the banner of Men United we can truly make a lasting difference to men’s health.”
Football fans are being targeted to raise awareness of the disease, which affects one in eight men sometime in their life and kills more than 10,000 men a year.
