The Robin Cancer Trust come to WHCS.
As always, we thank you in advance for your generosity and the charity tell us more about their work below!
. At Saturday's game against Sheffield United, we welcome a very worthy cause to the Weston Homes Community StadiumSince his passing, the Freeman family and our dedicated volunteers have worked tirelessly in and around Colchester to raise awareness and tell his story, hoping that it can save another family from going through the same. Watch The RCT's promotional video here.
The RCT was set-up in 2012 following the untimely death of our son and brother Robin Freeman (a lifelong Colchester United supporter) who passed away after a 10-month battle with cancer, aged just 24.
Based in Colchester, The Robin Cancer Trust (The RCT) is the UK's only dedicated germ cell cancer awareness charity.
The charity aims to raise awareness of all germ cell cancers, including both testicular and ovarian cancers, in adolescents and young adults through attending events, using the power of social media and giving life-saving awareness talks.
Our dedicated awareness campaigns aim to highlight the importance of early detection of this rare form of cancer, raising awareness of the signs and symptoms and tackling the 'embarrassment-factor' in young men and women.
All proceeds raised on Saturday will help fund our life-saving awareness campaigns, so we thank you in advance for your kind donations – please keep an eye out for our amazing #TeamRCT volunteers, who will be collecting before and after today’s match, and as always - up the U’s!
