East Thurrock United manager John Coventry’s son has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK, after the club was burgled on Non-League Day this past weekend.
The club have detailed both the events and subsequent appeal on their website with the following post:
The edge was taken off a brilliant Non-League Day for the club when we discovered this morning that our refreshment bar had been broken into.
As well as causing mindless damage and stealing soft drinks and chocolate, the kids also made off with the Prostate Cancer UK collection box. Their parents must be so proud of them.
As all football fans are aware, Prostate Cancer UK is the supported charity of Non-League Day. The club had already donated the proceeds of Saturday’s 50-50 draw to the charity.
To make up for the loss, John Coventry junior has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK, and it can be found via the link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/east-thurrock-united-prostate-cancer-uk
We would of course welcome your support.
