BWCT staff complete Manchester 10K for Prostate Cancer UK

Club and Community Trust continue their support of Prostate Cancer UK

Staff members of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust completed the Manchester 10K in support of Prostate Cancer UK last weekend.

The group, led by Head of the Community Trust and Club Chaplain Phil Mason, took part in the annual event to raise funds for the organisation with over £1,000 donated so far.

This act of support continues on from the club’s actions during the course of the season as a whole, with Wanderers having previously named their league clash against Norwich City in April as Prostate Cancer UK’s designated matchday.

Bucket collections were held on the day of the game, while support was also shown in the club’s matchday programme.

Alongside ensuring that much needed funds are raised for the organisation however, the Trust’s staff members also dedicated their run to former employee of the club Dave Melling who sadly lost his own battle with the disease back in September 2014.

The club’s final action of support for the charity will take place next month when Gareth Lester, a former member of the ground staff team at the Whites’ Lostock academy base, will take part in a bike ride from London to Amsterdam with the Men United Team.

Gareth, alongside many others, will be cycling 145 miles over two days between June 12 and 14 to raise money to help beat prostate cancer. 

To show your support and sponsor Gareth, please visit his JustGiving page at or alternatively, please text BWFC 68 plus the donation amount to 70070.

Donations meanwhile are still welcome in support of the Community Trust’s efforts in the Manchester 10K, with people able to show their support at or by texting BWCT 99 plus their donation amount to 70070.
