BFCST & WSB FANZINE CHARITY WALK TO BRADFORD CITY FC - 25 APRIL 2015

Barnsley FC Supporters’ Trust and Fanzine combine for good cause



When Bradford City host Barnsley on Saturday 25th April, it will be 30 years since a fire engulfed the main stand at Bradford, and this walk aims to raise money for the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit and local Barnsley charity Jaxon’s Gift. Jaxon’s Gift supports families in the region impacted by the death of a young child.

Where possible we encourage you to split your donations between these two worthwhile charities, but if one is close to your heart by all means make your donation there.

Barnsley Football Club Supporters’ Trust and the West Stand Bogs Fanzine will be walking the 23.9 miles to Bradford City Football Club in memory of the 56 football fans who tragically never made it home on 11 May 1985.

BFCST have had a long affiliation with Bradford City Football Club, both on and off the pitch, working in the past to organise a commemorative game between the clubs to celebrate Barnsley’s promotion to the Premier League. Paul Gallagher, Chairman of BFCST, commented ‘The Bradford City Fire will always go down as one of the saddest days in football history. Nobody should fail to make it home from a football match, and we’re honoured that ourselves and our fanzine are working together to make a difference for this anniversary. We’ve started the ball rolling on donations by contributing £400 from the proceeds of Redfearn’s Bar to the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research unit, and we encourage as many supporters as possible to get involved or make a donation to this great cause’.

West Stand Bogs is a relatively new, non profit making, fanzine only 18 months old, but thriving issue after issue and soaring in popularity with fans. Liam Dyson, co-founder of the fanzine, said ‘After organising a similar walk to Chesterfield earlier in the season and raising £8,500 for the Barnsley Churches Drop In charity, we’re delighted to be working with the Supporters’ Trust on this charity walk to not only support the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit, but Jaxon’s Gift as well, a local charity, chosen by our readers as the charity they would like us to get behind. Hopefully we’ll get a good turn out. There’s likely to be some stiff legs at 3pm but it’s all worth it!’

If you would like to be involved in the walk don't hesitate to contact us through abloore1@tesco.net or weststandbogs@gmail.com

Thanks for your support!
