bkpca posterIn January 2012, Burnley supporters were shocked to hear that chairman of 13 years Barry Kilby was standing down at the end of that season to fight his own personal battle with prostate cancer.

He stayed on the board of directors and last season was able to start playing a more active role again when he was elected as vice-chairman of the club. Added to that is the work he’s done with his charity, the Barry Kilby Prostate Cancer Appeal, which has already potentially saved lives with the PSA testing events that have been held at Turf Moor and at other football clubs.

Another Turf Moor event is planned for early next season and the date will be confirmed once next season’s fixtures have been released.

This coming Sunday, ahead of our final game of the season against West Ham, a charity walk is being held to fund that next PSA testing event. The walk starts in Great Harwood on Sunday morning from 9:30 a.m. and the walkers will make their way to the Turf via Clayton-le-Moors, Altham and Padiham.

Barry himself will be starting off the walk in which anyone is welcome to join. If you’d like to take part but don’t feel you can complete the full walk, that doesn’t matter, there will be cars on standby. There are already a few people walking who have prostate cancer but want to join the walk for a short distance.

If you would like to join the walk, please contact either Peter Gonzalez on 07500 363965 or Alan Croasdale on 07798 521448. Alternatively you can contact them via their Facebook page.

There will be bucket collections throughout the walk and also at Turf Moor. If you can spare a pound or two, you could just be helping to save lives.
