Yeovil Town’s recent venture into the world of Pop Music has been finally completed with the news that over £100 was raised from sales of Viva Pitch’s recording of “Running”.
The single has been available to down load on iTunes and although a higher figure had been hoped for the club have hailed the whole project as a success.
Yeovil Town approached the project with the view that the club would gain some good publicity along with raising both awareness and cash for the Football League’s Prostrate Cancer UK Charity.
In publicity terms the club certainly had a considerable amount from the project with the band appearing on Sky TV’s Soccer AM, ITV West’s local news and Sky Sports News.
Press coverage was also extensive with word wide coverage and a YouTube video of the girls performing with Middlesbrough’s Albert Adomah had well over 50,000 views.
Prostate Cancer UK Director of Fundraising Mark Bishop said: “It was good to work with Yeovil Town and Viva Pitch throughout this innovative project.
“It’s great that our continued progress within football is allowing us to reach men through many different avenues.
"The Men United v Prostate Cancer campaign has gained some great exposure thanks to the efforts of the club and the girls, and this increased awareness, along with the money raised, will help us fight back against a disease that kills one man every hour.”
An official cheque presentation will take place in due courtse.
