We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


Peter Swann, Scunthorpe United Chairman writes: "My continued support of various cancer charities throughout the country had my wife and I attending Ronan Keating’s Emeralds & Ivy Ball (Cancer Research UK and The Marie Keating Foundation) in London in December, something we have done for many years. 

"The Emeralds & Ivy ball raises funds for Cancer Research UK’s Cancer Awareness Roadshow units and hubs that travel to the heart of communities, talking to over 60,000 people every year about cancer. Their nurses help people to take steps to reduce their risk of cancer through lifestyle changes. And they also encourage people to go to their GP with any concerns – picking cancer up at an earlier stage means treatment is more likely to be successful.

"Over the years we have given as much as we can to help this incredible cause and with the continued support of Cancer Research UK, we are delighted to announce that we have committed further funds to the Cancer Awareness Roadshow Units and hubs, a mission that is so close to Ronan and his families heart. Last year they raised over £1-million pounds on the evening and yet again that figure was achieved in December, an unbelievable result and I am so proud we can contribute towards that.

"Scunthorpe United will give £1,000 for every point we win, over the remaining 25 league games of this season, to boost that figure beyond the £1-million and to help with the continued battle against cancer."
