Cefn Albion raises £1,000 for the British Heart Foundation

On Sunday 25th August 2019, people connected to Cefn Albion football club participated in a fun filled charity bike ride to raise money for Alder Hey and the British Heart Foundation. We are delighted to announce that we raised £2,000 with £1,000 being donated to each charity.

Everyone in our community will be aware of brave 4-year-old boy Leo Minors who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in February. After months of heart ache and treatments for Leo and his family he is now in remission, but he will keep having to have treatment over the next three years at Alder hey, hence why this year it has been a charity that we have supported and will continue to support. We already raised £1350 for Leo and Alder Hey during the Marblehead Johnson Gig.

Over the weekend, one of our hard-working fundraisers Paul Vaughan and club captain Nathan Williams went down to the Cefn Mawr community social club to hand over the one thousand pound cheque to Andy Green from the BHF.

A massive well done to everyone who has made this possible. The amount of money we have raised for various charities and local causes has been first class and it wouldn't be possible without hard work! We are already planning the next!
