Cancer call from Leisure Leagues

SIX-A-SIDE football providers, Leisure Leagues, are at the forefront of a new campaign in a bid to reduce testicular cancer.

SIX-A-SIDE football providers, Leisure Leagues, are at the forefront of a new campaign in a bid to reduce testicular cancer.

The organisation give all of their profits to charitable causes and environmentally sustainable projects, including donations to Cancer Research UK.

Leisure Leagues' Executive Director Stephanie Bullock said, "Every year in the UK around 2,000 cases of testicular cancer are diagnosed.

"The most common symptoms are a painless lump or swelling on one of the testicles, usually noticed by the patient".

"This is why we want to encourage men to take matters into their own hands, so to speak", added Stephanie.

The disease, that has affected a number of high-profile sportsmen in the past, kills on average nearly 100 men each year in the UK, and Leisure Leagues are hoping to reduce that figure by their continued help and support for Cancer Research.

Anybody interested in joining either the Fox Hollies Leisure Centre, Moseley Rugby Club or Olton & West Warwicks Sports Centre leagues should call Leisure Leagues on 0845 230 2340.
