£3000 raised for Macmillan Cancer Support

Following the recent success of Neil ‘Davo’ Davies’ Testimonial match and fundraising Day at Jenner Park, Neil along with representatives from Wales Veterans Football and Barry Town United were pleased to hand over a cheque for £3000 to Macmillan, who have been supporting Neil and his family in his recent battle with terminal cancer.


Neil, who resides in Barry, was keen to raise awareness of the illness, but also to generate much needed funds for the Macmillan Cancer UK Charity, and on Saturday 14th August at Jenner Park a Veterans football match provided the centre-piece of a day of fundraising activities. An auction, skilfully hosted by Cardiff City legend and Barry Town Veterans player Roger Gibbins, contributed to a grand total of £3000 for Macmillan Cancer Charity along with a further £1250 towards a short break for Neil and his partner Helen.


Chris Dickson, Sharon Corbett and Sheila Gifford, members of The Pontyclun and District Macmillan Fundraising Group gratefully accepted the cheque from Neil and Mark Barratt, chairman of Barry Town United Football Club, which will help them continue with their good work.
