There will be a half-time presentation to the Bradford University Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit at the game vs. Gillingham on Saturday Nov 22nd. It will feature Alan Tay, David Sharpe Research Fellow at the PSBRU, receiving a donation for the running total of the 30th Anniversary Commemoration to date. This kicks off the recently announced campaign to raise £300,000 with support coming in countrywide.
The delegation making the presentation on behalf of major donors include:
Leroy Lewis, Tim Clarke, Leanne Clarke, Krystyna Szczygiel and Danny Wright - Bradalona FC
Keith Petty - Three Peaks Walk
Matt Stevens-Woodhead, Gemma Wilson - FYSA Theatre Group
Ian 'Stix' Ormondroyd - BCFC Community Foundation
Mike Thompson - Supporters Board/Supporters Trust
The recent news that the FA, Premier League and Football League will all be joining us in this years commemorations is very welcome for the people of Bradford and Lincoln, who have always marked the occasion with great dignity. It is fantastic that the football community can come together like this and also perhaps make a tangible contribution by donating to the Burns Unit Appeal. The Premier League have already announced a £25,000 donation. This will be of tremendous help in meeting the target and we thank them most sincerely.
We will keep you informed of other initiatives and events as they develop.
