The Charity Partner for Saturday’s game against Nottingham Forest is Breast Cancer Care.
Sheffield Wednesday will be doing a number of ‘pink’ themed activities to raise awareness around the charity and Owls fans are being encouraged to wear pink to the match to mark their support.
Breast Cancer Care, the official charity partner of the Football League, works in the local community to deliver services locally and to make a difference.
Breast Cancer Care volunteer Tony Herbert will be visiting Sheffield Wednesday’s Education Programme to talk and educate BTEC Sports Studies students around the subject of breast cancer and the chances of men developing the disease. Tony was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2012 and will speak about the importance of being breast health aware.
Saturday’s match will see Owls players and the club mascots wear pink Breast Cancer Care t-shirts during warm up to show their support for the charity and staff members will also be wearing charity badges to show their support.
The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the higher the chances of successful treatment. The charity are raising awareness across the UK of the signs and symptoms and the importance of going to your GP if you notice any changes.
