Cray Wanderers will wear the Breast Cancer Campaign logo on their shirt this season, raising awareness for the club's fundraising efforts for the charity.

Manager Ian Jenkins approached the charity with the proposal to raise funds in a move that is thought to be a first for a non-league club.

He said: “I have seen at first hand the damage breast cancer can do to people who contract this disease and how it affects their families.

“My wife, Wendy, my mother-in-law and sister-in-law all have suffered from it. Fortunately they all came through. But there is still a lot of work to be done.”

Ian has already raised cash by running the London Marathon in April, and holding a golf day earlier this summer.

Club chairman, Gary Hillman, said: “I will be meeting with Ian to look at ways to maximise our support for this campaign.

“We will also be speaking to the charity to get their help and advice to make sure we get the best return on our efforts.”

Further information on the club’s fundraising efforts will appear on their site, visit pitchero.com/clubs/craywands.
