Old Pats have teamed up with OddBalls to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer. Through this, you might have seen the OPRFC Oddballs hats being worn by players, coaches and supporters.
The Oddballs Foundation has been going since 2014 and is a very popular charity with professional rugby teams and amateur teams. All products and donations help run the OddBalls Foundation and the fantastic work it does. Ambassadors and celebrities promoting it include James Haskell (ex-England and Lions), Shane Williams (ex-Wales and Lions) and Christian Wade (ex-England and Lions).
Closer to home, former Gloucester player Darren Dawiduk is a supporter of the OddBalls Charity after being diagnosed with Testicular Cancer and successfully overcoming it.
The aim of OddBalls is to make a difference to male health around the world – with Testicular Cancer being around 95% curable. An early diagnosis is important so regular checking is vital to this.
Old Pats have sold and distributed 100 hats and this means OPRFC helped raise close to £500. OPRFC are aiming to continue the good work in the New Year with more hats (in a different design) to spread the OddBalls name – with more information on this to be released very soon.
