Barnsley Football Club and Reds defender, Adam Jackson, have joined Team Weston Park to show their support for Weston Park Cancer Charity and to launch the up and coming Weston Park Cancer Charity Day at the Sheffield United match on Saturday 7th April.
As part of the partnership Barnsley FC have with Weston Park, next month's South Yorkshire Derby against Sheffield United at Oakwell has been designated a 'Weston Park Takeover Day'. Members of the charity team and volunteers will be engaging with fans to raise awareness for the charity and the work it does in the Barnsley area.
Reds Defender, Adam Jackson is immensely proud to be sponsored by the Cancer Charity and is fully committed to making the day a success.
'Weston Park work tirelessly within our region to help those with life threatening illnesses. As a charity, they rely heavily on public donations to operate and ultimately, change lives. It’s great that the Club are getting behind this and I hope the day is a massive success for all involved!'
As the region’s only specialist cancer hospital, Weston Park provides care for thousands of patients across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire, including over 2,300 patients from Barnsley.
In the build up to the day make sure you keep your eyes across barnsleyfc.co.uk and official social media channels, as information will be published informing fans on the ways they can get involved, as well as details relating to Weston Park events in the near future.
Darren Hayes, Business Development Manager at Weston Park Cancer Charity, commented; “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Barnsley Football Club to highlight the work Weston Park does to support cancer patients in Barnsley. As a charity we are committed to fund things that the NHS is not able to and with the generous support of fans, we can continue to give people in our region access to the very best cancer care services.”
All money raised through the partnership and ‘Weston Park Takeover Day’ will directly benefit local cancer patients through projects which provide practical help to those in need, emotional support to those in despair and enhanced care for those who need it most.
