Arch-rivals Arsenal and Spurs team up
Arsenal has teamed up with arch-rival Spurs to tackle bowel cancer.
The bitter north London rivals put aside their differences to back the Be Clear on Cancer campaign alongside Islington and Haringey Primary Care Trusts.
The clubs are encouraging people to visit a GP if they have bowel cancer symptoms for more than three weeks – particularly if they are over 55.
Alan Sefton, head of Arsenal in the Community, said: “It’s crucial that the symptoms of bowel cancer are recognised as early as possible, before it’s too late. We’re urging supporters of the club to seek medical attention if they spot any of the signs.”
Grant Cornwell, chief executive of Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, said: “As a club, we are always keen to support local health initiatives, especially those which could help reduce the numbers of lives lost to cancer in our community each year.”
