Their goal is to never walk alone

Evesham Editorial 3rd Jul, 2018   0

ASPIRING Harry Kanes are being invited to showcase their skills as Worcestershire Royal Hospital radiographers Richard Cormie and Dan Bloomer ae working with Macmillan Move More and with Prostate Cancer UK to arrange a game of walking football for prostate cancer patients.

The caring pair have organised the game to ensure patients don’t walk alone during treatment and keep active whilst hopefully enjoying themselves in a socially friendly environment.

“Research has shown that some men can be reluctant to seek social support through formal support groups so it is hoped that by organising a walking football match these patients might be more willing to come forward and enjoy a friendly game with fellow prostate cancer patients,” Dan said.

The evening is also open to those men who have finished their treatment but who would like to increase their activity levels and no prior football or walking football experience is required.




Kick-off is 6pm on Tuesday, August 7 at Perdiswell Leisure Centre in Worcester.
