We have decided to
support Acrefair Youth Football Club logo and their campaign to raise funds for
Prostate Cancer UK as it is something quite close to home for some of our team.
Prostate Cancer has become their third biggest cancer killer
in the UK and we want to help in any way possible to help raise funding and
reduce this number. When Acrefair YFC came to us, the idea was simple, to help
raise awareness for young men and help them tackle this growing disease – and with
some of our teams own personal experiences, we felt we had to help in our own
little small way.
Tasked with producing printed armbands, we were quick to accept and get them to the boys. As you can see below they turned out great!

After launching their campaign earlier this month, everyone at Acrefair YFC has been busy getting the ball rolling with fundraising. With a number of events planned throughout the season to raise much needed awareness and funds, the first event bag packing event took place at Tesco Cefn Mawr raising £114.
The part we played in helping was small, but everyone here at GF is keeping a close eye on how Acrefair YFCs season goes both on and off the field.
