FAW: Keenor Collection

FAW

FAW GIVE GO-AHEAD TO KEENOR COLLECTION AT WALES-ENGLAND CLASH

BUCKET COLLECTION RAISES MORE THAN £1,700 FOR KEENOR STATUE APPEAL 

The appeal committee is delighted to announce that we raised £1,710.89 (subject to checking at the bank) from the bucket collection outside the Millennium Stadium before Wales v England.

 

This was great considering many of the fans were not Cardiff City supporters or even regular Wales fans. We were allocated three of the stadium’s Gates 5,6 and 7 to collect from.

 

Thanks to the volunteers who made the event such a success, to those that generously chipped in cash and to the Football Association of Wales for allowing us to hold the bucket collection.

 

You can still help the appeal by buying one of the 8in figurines of Fred Keenor or the pin badges. You can get further details on purchasing these items by contacting fundraising@ccfctrust.org.

 

The efforts of everyone mean the kitty stands at over £46,000, well over half-way.



We’re delighted to announce on St David’s Day that the Football Association of Wales has given the go-ahead for a bucket collection in aid of the Fred Keenor Statue Appeal at the sell-out Wales-England clash.

David Craig, project manager of the appeal, said: “Playing England is always the biggest game for Welsh football fans, so we’re thrilled the FAW has generously given us permission to hold a bucket collection before the Euro qualifier later this month. With a sell-out audience, we are very hopeful of raising a substantial sum for the appeal thanks to the support of fans at the game. Football supporters have been enormously generous already and the message we’re getting from them is that we want to see a statue erected in aid of Fred Keenor, who captained both Wales and Cardiff City to great success, and reached the top of the game despite being badly injured in the Battle of the Somme. We’re hoping that supporters, wherever they come from, will get behind the appeal by digging deep into their pockets while also cheering Wales on to a famous victory over the old enemy. That would be fantastic,” said David.

The appeal, which was launched 11 months ago, has raised more than £41,000 almost half-way to the £85,000 cost of the permanent tribute to Fred Keenor.

The international takes place at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, March 26th, kick off 3pm.
