Andrew set for charity derby walk for Prostate Cancer UK

10 April 2018

Robins supporter Andrew Champion is lacing up his hiking boots for charity next week as he walks from Forest Green Rovers to Cheltenham Town in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

Andrew Champion was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April 2017. Fortunately, it was caught early enough for him to have surgery and now he is determined to raise awareness and funds to fight the cancer. 

He will be walking from The New Lawn to the LCI Rail Stadium with his 27-mile walk starting on Friday, April 13 at 9.30am and arriving in Cheltenham on derby day at 2pm.

β€œI have decided to combine my love of local football with raising money for this special charity,” he said. β€œOver two days I will be walking with my wife and three daughters Karen, Aimee Ruth and Annie-Mae. We are aiming to at arrive at Whaddon Road in time for kick off.

β€œThe walk will take in Stroud, Painswick Village, the Cotswold way and various parts of Cheltenham. Please feel free to join us and chuck some money in our buckets as we pass through.”
