Bournemouth and England international Jack Wilshere, said: “We’re proud to show our support for such a great cause on World Cancer Day.
“We hope that with the club’s backing and the support of others, Dorset Cancer Care Foundation can continue its great and highly-valued work.”
Dorset Cancer Care Foundation (DCCF) gives financial assistance to Dorset families affected by cancer, funding everything from short breaks and counselling, to transport costs to and from hospital and household bills.
The charity was set up in Poole in 2012 and is one of the club’s official charities for 2017.
Cherries chairman Jeff Mostyn is also a patron of the charity.

DCCF trustee Anne Rowland, said: “Bournemouth’s support is invaluable to us as a small, local charity in raising awareness of the struggles people can face while undergoing cancer treatment.
“Jack and Benik have also kindly signed their shirts and donated them to DCCF to auction off.
“We hope Cherries fans will also join the players in supporting us, by staging their own fundraising events for DCCF in 2017.“
World Cancer Day is on February 4, 2017.
