Breakwells Paints are proud to support Balls to Cancer and help them raise the funds they need for male cancer awareness and education.
Founded in 2011 this great local charity was started with one clear aim, to fight cancer with fun! With over 200,000 men being diagnosed with some form of cancer every year, and 80,000 dying yearly, it was time to act. The funding will help them to raise awareness nationally through social networks, media, leaflets and posters to try and make both men and women more aware of the dangers of cancer, and to help men help themselves. They firmly believe that prevention is the key to beating cancer. They are also hoping to open up a male contact point for men/boys who have been diagnosed with cancer or are worried about cancer and their families.
Their fund-raising events all have the same goal and that is to keep it fun! Over the years they have organised a wide range of events from races to football matches and climbing mountains to bungee jumping. By offering such a wide range of activities they are hoping to get all the family members involved. This year sees them celebrating their 10th anniversary and they have some great celebration events organised including a BTC Pro/Celebrity football match which will be held at Hednesford Town Football Club on Saturday 26th June. Featuring a great line up of ex-professional footballers and celebrities who are all giving up their time for free, this is set to be an excellent night for all.

“My first involvement with the charity was during my time at Willenhall Town Football club and I have followed them and the good work they do for a number of years now” explained Russell, “Seeing Phil Daniels raising money for them on ITV Catchphrase recently, prompted me to contact Mark to help promote and support Balls to Cancer again, in as many ways we can.”
