Charlton supporting charity
 Women's Football News 11 Oct 2013
 
Charlton supporting charity - 11 Oct 2013 - Women's Football NewsCharlton Athletic are proud to be supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, alongside Portsmouth Ladies when the two sides meet on Sunday at Sporting Club Thamesmead (kick off 2pm). 
 
With no men's team game due to the international break, Addicks fans can satisfy their weekly Charlton fix by supporting the women, with tickets priced at just £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
 
Both sides, as well as the officials and ground staff, will be wearing pink bibs with the logo of local cancer charity The Pink Ribbon Foundation on them. There will also be a bucket collection at the ground in aid of the charity.
 
The organisation funds cancer projects up and down the UK and helps other charities that work with cancer sufferers. Trustee Jonathan Prince said: "I am happy to be associated with sport and anything is appreciated in terms of awareness."
 
The Orpington-based foundation already has links with Charlton Athletic, with two "blue ribbon" consulting rooms at The Valley and Mr Prince is pleased to have consolidated those links by getting involved with the women's side regarding breast cancer.
 
"We also have a strong relationship with the community trust through running male health awareness clinics," he added.
 
"I met Stephen [King, the women's team's chairman] at an Ebbsfleet game and we were introduced by Steve Sutherland. We got talking and I had actually just been discussing pink hi-vis vests to do with ladies basketball.
 
"So it is only natural to move into women's football as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month."
 
It is set to be a good game of football in Thamesmead as Charlton will be looking for their third successive league win, after recent victories over Keynsham Town (4-0) and Chesham United (3-2).
