A chance meeting between Prostate Cancer UK ambassador Kevin Webber and the Stones squad was the inspiration for the club’s 2020 calendar.
George Elokobi challenged his teammates to ditch their kit to raise awareness of a condition that one man dies from every 45 minutes in the UK.
Kevin visited the Gallagher Stadium in October while doing three marathons in three days to launch this year’s MANarama campaign, on behalf of the charity and league sponsors Vanarama.
The prolific fundraiser, who was diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer in November 2014 and told he could have as little as two years left to live, spoke movingly to the players about his diagnosis and making every day count – a message resonated with the Stones captain, as you’ll see from this Stones TV interview.
The calendar will be on sale in the club shop this week, it’s a perfect stocking filler!
