ALBION legends Dick Knight and Guy Butters joined more than 100 guests at a charity quiz night in Southwick.

The former Brighton & Hove Albion chairman and ex-club captain took part in the quiz at The Romans, in Manor Hall Road, to support Albion’s Be Cancer Aware project

They were were joined by Albion fans, local GPs, staff from Adur and Worthing councils and volunteers to support the campaign to increase awareness of the early signs and symptoms of lung, breast, bowel and prostate cancer among men and women over 50.

Sue Brown, from Albion in the Community, which co-ordinates the project, said: “It was great to see so many people come out to support the event and help us raise awareness of a serious issue in a fun way.

“Having that connection with the Albion is really important for the project.

“People see the club as something they recognise and identify with and this can sometimes make it easier for them to talk about cancer.”

Volunteer John Palfrey, a prostate cancer survivor, added: “Being a volunteer offers me the chance to give something small back after the huge support that was extended to me when I was ill.”
