Sunday’s game against Arsenal has been dedicated to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer Care and will celebrate the fantastic work done by the charity across Merseyside and the North West.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Pink Ribbon, the global symbol of breast cancer. This is why Everton Football Club and its official charity Everton in the Community, have joined forces with Breast Cancer Care to help raise funds for those affected by breast cancer.
Everton first-team players will be donning the bright pink colours of Breast Cancer Care in specially designed t-shirts for their pre-match warm up whilst bucket collections will be taking place around the ground.
All funds raised on the day through bucket collections, text-to-donate numbers and the sale of Breast Cancer Care pin badges will go direct to the charity to help support services such as the charity’s Moving Forward Courses at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital that help women adjust to life after breast cancer treatment.
To make a £3 donation text PINK to 70300 or look out for one of the Breast Cancer Care volunteers around Goodison Park on Sunday and make a cash donation.
