Robbie Savage urges fans

Derby County captain Robbie Savage is reaching out to football fans in order help select the Alzheimer's Society as The Football League's official charity for next season.

The Rams star is an ambassador for the Alzheimer's Society, which has been short listed by the league, as his father suffers from a form of the illness.

Robbie Savage speaking from his own experience, after his father was dignosed said: "I've faced a lot of challenges on the pitch, but watching my father and my hero diagnosed with dementia has been the biggest challenge of my life. I've never felt so helpless.

"Alzheimer's Society champions the rights of people living with dementia and the millions of people who care for them. That's why I want everyone to vote for the Alzheimer's Society."

Also on the short list are the British Heart Foundation, Breast Cancer Care, Everyman Male Cancer Campaign, Help the Hospice and Samaritans.

The Football League's director of marketing and communications officer, Gavin Megaw said: "We are committed to supporting good causes, especially those demonstrating close community links around the league's 72 clubs.

"We are delighted to be providing fans with the opportunity to have their say in the selection of our official charity partner for 2011-12 and encourage them to cast their vote via our website."
