THE edge was taken off a brilliant Non-League Day for East Thurrock United when they discovered on Sunday morning that their refreshment bar had been broken into.
As well as causing mindless damage and stealing soft drinks and chocolate, the kids also made off with the Prostate Cancer UK collection box.
As all football fans are aware, Prostate Cancer UK is the supported charity of Non-League Day. The club had already donated the proceeds of Saturday’s 50-50 draw to the charity.
To make up for the loss, John Coventry junior has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK, and it can be found via the link; https://www.gofundme.com/f/east-thurrock-united-prostate-cancer-uk
