Rovers fans affected by cancer enjoy special day out at Ewood Park.

As part of their Good Together partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, Blackburn Rovers and Macmillan are inviting fans affected by cancer to join the first Macmillan Good Together VIP Day at this Saturday's home fixture with Reading.
 
Free of charge, Good Together guests will be invited to Ewood Park's exclusive Bob Crompton suite, where they will be treated to an informal pre-match Macmillan Good Together lunch, during which they can relax and chat to other fans in similar situations. 
 
In addition, local Macmillan information professionals will be on hand to answer any questions or offer guidance on the range of support available across East Lancashire.
 
Good Together guests will also be offered a complimentary matchday ticket so they can watch Rovers take on the Royals. 
 
Rovers manager Gary Bowyer said: "Blackburn Rovers are very proud to be a Macmillan Good Together partner and we're looking forward to hosting our first ever Macmillan Good Together VIP Day for fans affected by cancer. We hope our fans enjoy it, connect with other Rovers fans facing similar challenges and find out about Macmillan's wide range of vital support services across East Lancashire."
 
Linda Hill, Macmillan Involvement Coordinator for Lancashire, added: "At Macmillan Cancer Support, we believe that no-one should face cancer alone, so we are delighted to be working in partnership with Blackburn Rovers on our Good Together programme. Through the fantastic Good Together events, Macmillan will be able to reach and support many more people affected by cancer in East Lancashire who feel isolated, to ensure they access the vital support that they need."
