Prior to Christmas, Iron Chairman Peter Swann pledged £1,000 for every point the side attained in their remaining 25 league games to the charity and that was swiftly followed up with three points against local rivals Grimsby Town barely 24 hours.

The second donation came at the start of the year when three points were taken against Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park on New Year's Day.

This has been swiftly followed by donations of £1,000 each point gained against Bradford City and Crewe Alexandra respectively.

A number of enquiries have been made whether supporters can do the same, or make a one-off donation to the charity to be brought together as one total. This has lead to the club creating a Just Giving page (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sufcofficial) so you can monitor our total, and also add to it yourself.

So whether it's a one-off donation, or you want to donate per point too, visit the Just Giving page and watch the total rise through our on-field success.

All proceeds go to the world’s leading independent cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research, influence and information. Together we will beat cancer.

As part of the Chairman's Christmas statement, he said: "My continued support of various cancer charities throughout the country had my wife and I attending the Ronan Keating Emeralds and Ivy Ball (Cancer Research UK and The Marie Keating Foundation) in London last week, something we have done for many years. Over those years we have given as much as we can to help in the early diagnosis of many cancers and with the continued support of Cancer Research UK, we are delighted to announce that we have committed further funds in the battle against Breast Cancer, something that has been so close to Ronan and his family's heart. Last year they raised over £1-million pounds on the evening and yet again that figure was achieved, an unbelievable result and I am so proud we can contribute toward that.

"Scunthorpe United will give £1,000 for every point we win, over the remaining 25 league games of this season, to boost that figure beyond the £1-million and to help with the continued battle against cancer."
