CONFERENCE MAKING £3550 DONATION
Wednesday Aug 20, 2014
The generosity of club members and guests who attended the annual Football Conference Gala Awards Dinner in June at Celtic Manor Hotel, will be marked with a donation of £3550 to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The presentation is to be made to a representative of the Trust at half time LIVE on BTSport on August Bank Holiday Monday (25th) at the New Lawn when Forest Green Rovers host local rivals Bristol Rovers in an eagerly awaited first ever Vanarama Conference derby fixture.
Conference chairman Brian Lee, who will carry out the pleasant task of handing over the donation said: "My fellow directors and all our member clubs join with me to endorse that our chosen charitable beneficiary for 2014 is a worthwhile recipient.
"The Teenage Cancer Trust works in a specialist field, responding to needs with first class support, through an excellent service of care to those young people and their families who unfortunately face such difficult times.
"I am honoured to be presenting a financial contribution as a small token of gratitude and esteem from our membership towards the sterling work they undertake in our communities".
