Professional Player work with many charities which are very close to our hearts. XPRO is our partner charity.
We are also keen to publicise the involvement that players have with different charities and foundations. This off the pitch work usually goes unnoticed by the public, and Professional Player are fully aware of what players do outside of football, that doesn’t print newspapers.
If you are a charity, or a player involved with any charities or foundations who would like to work with Professional Player then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Marina Dalglish Appeal
The Marina Dalglish Appeal was set-up by the Dalglish family in 2005 'to do something to help' after Marina was successfully treated for Breast Cancer in 2003. The charity has one very simple aim 'to make a difference'.
The Appeal's exciting new project in 2016 will be taking over the Lily Centre in Liverpool, where they will be offering holistic, emotional, and education support to breast cancer sufferers and their families. Their hope is to continue and expand on the great work of all the volunteers at 'The Retreat' at Aintree University Hospital and to create a much-needed support network away from a hospital environment.
Boot Out Breast Cancer
Debbie Dowie, wife of Ian Dowie set up this charity in 2010 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Ian is an ambassador for the charity along with ALan Shearer.
Debbie was one of the lucky ones, but the scare many her very aware of just how many women receive this diagnosis each year and the desperate need for the latest diagnostic equipment.
Debbie decided to turn her experience with breast cancer into a positive one and Boot Out Breast Cancer was born.
Boot Out is committed to fundraising and to making sure that every penny raised is spent on equipment in the NHS.
