Football’s transfer window provides great interest for fans every year, as players move between clubs and excitement builds towards Transfer Deadline Day.
The transfer window is now open and a new team of eight cancer charities, including our Foundation, has been invited to come together to back a campaign ending on Transfer Deadline Day (1 February).
Raising much-needed funds, the Cancer Deadline Day campaign will equally benefit: Breast Cancer Now, CLIC Sargent, Macmillan Cancer Support, Pancreatic Cancer UK, Prostate Cancer UK, The Ruth Strauss Foundation and Teenage Cancer Trust, as well as our Foundation.
Fans of clubs are being asked to donate online here, referencing their own football club as they do.

Transfer Deadline Day is one of the biggest days of the year for football fans and the British media.
