Vanarama and Matt Le Tissier join forces to support Non-League Day 2014

We're pleased to announce that Vanarama and Matt Le Tissier have joined forces to support Non-League Day 2014.

As sponsors of The Football Conference their primary objective for Non-League Day is to get as many fans through the turnstiles as possible, shattering the league's 2013 and 2012 attendance figures of 39,000 and 36,000 respectively. They will also be working with our official charity Prostate Cancer UK to raise funds by donating 10p for EVERY fan that attends a Conference game on Non-League Day. Based on last year's attendance this would generate at least £4000. However, if 50,000 fans attend a game then Vanarama will double their donation, making at least £10,000 for Prostate Cancer!

Show us your 'Thumbs Up' for Non-League Day You can help achieve this by supporting your local team and attending a game on the weekend of 6th/7th September. On Twitter we want you to join Matt Le Tissier and tweet your 'Thumbs Up' and join the campaign to make Non-League Day 2014 the most successful yet.

Use the hashtag #thumbsup4nld when you tweet so we can find and re-tweet you! How else can you support Non-League Day 2014? We want to see as many 'Thumbs Up' as possible on social media.

Non-League Day team up with Spot Kick Millionaire™ for £1M Penalty Shoot-Out Competition

Spot Kick Millionaire™ in association with Lucozade Sport and Wings for Life are searching for Britain's top penalty taker, with huge cash prizes on offer for clubs and their supporters.

Clubs across the country are being encouraged to host their own qualifying round of Spot Kick Millionaire™, with winners progressing to regional finals and eventually the grand final in London. Up to £100,000 in prize money is on offer for participating clubs with supporters competing for the ultimate individual prize of £1M.

With the competition closing date scheduled for September 30th and Non-League Day taking place earlier in the month, Campaign Manager Mike Bayly sees a genuine synergy between the two events: “By staging a qualifying round of the competition at their ground, clubs can generate additional interest and revenue on Non-League Day, which is one of the campaign’s primary objectives. Club volunteers often contact us for activity suggestions and this is as good an idea as we’ve heard. If it means one club ends up walking away with a six figure prize pot, all the better!”

Further information, including details on how to register your club for the competition, can be found by visiting the Spot Kick Millionaire website.

Fundrising For Prostate Cancer UK

Looking ahead to Non league Day on 6th September, would your club like to do a post-match fundraiser for our official charity Prostate Cancer UK – such as a clubhouse quiz or BBQ?

250,000 men in the UK are living with prostate cancer – almost three times the capacity of Wembley Stadium – and are left to cope with impotence, incontinence and infertility. 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. The money you raise will help us support men, find answers through research and fight for change. You can learn more on the Prostate Cancer UK website.

Please contact Chris Carter, Community Engagement Manager on 020 3310 7006 or email him to order pin badges for your management team and other fundraising materials.

Prostate Cancer UK Announces Partnership With Non-League Day

Prostate Cancer UK will be the official charity partner of Non-League Day 2014. The annual event, which takes place on Saturday, September 6th, will see hundreds of football clubs from across the non-league pyramid encouraged to raise awareness and money for the charity. The Non-League Day team were first drawn to the idea of partnering with Prostate Cancer UK by their ‘Men United v Prostate Cancer’ campaign which has seen them build an important relationship with The Football League and its member clubs.

James Doe, founder of Non-League Day said: “We had a really positive chat with the people from Prostate Cancer UK and it was refreshing to see how they wanted to reach supporters and players at all levels of our national game. “Prostate Cancer UK are fighting to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. Money raised is used to provide information and fund research into a disease which kills 10,000 men a year in the UK, the equivalent of one every hour. “We hope that non-league clubs and their supporters will also wish to adopt Prostate Cancer UK as a charity for the day and look forward to hearing from any who would like to host themed events or fundraising activities.”

Prostate Cancer UK’s Director of Fundraising, Mark Bishop said: ”Prostate cancer is killing one man every hour but many men still find it tough to face up to important health issues. That’s why we have embarked on a very deliberate way of using football as a way of talking to men about this killer disease. “Our Men United v Prostate Cancer campaign has worked brilliantly for us across The Football League but we don’t want to stop there. We want to make all men connected to non-league football just as aware as this deadly disease matters to us all; that’s why this weekend is so important.”

Prostate Cancer UK are targetting football fans across the terraces up and down the country, raising awareness of the disease which affects 1 in 8 men sometime in their life and kills over 10,000 men a year. More than 180,000 people have signed for Men United by doing a simple online test.
If your club are interested in running an event for Prostate Cancer UK or are happy to let their volunteers into the ground on Non-League Day , please contact Chris Carter, Community Engagement Manager, on 0203 310 7006 or at chris.carter@prostatecanceruk.org.
