In a heartwarming display of community spirit and support, AFC Bournemouth’s community fund has made a significant contribution to the Youth Cancer Trust, donating £1,000 to aid in our work. This donation underscores the football club’s commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of young people facing cancer.
The donation will go towards Youth Cancer Trust services which provide support and free, wellbeing holiday experiences to young people (aged 14 to 30) living with and beyond cancer in the UK. The Trust’s efforts have been instrumental in improving the quality of life for these young individuals, offering them a chance to enjoy new experiences, meet others in similar situations, and receive emotional support.
AFC Bournemouth’s donation is part of their ongoing initiative to support local charitable causes. The community fund, fuelled by the club and its supporters, aims to make a tangible difference in the area, focusing on health, education, and social inclusion.
During the cheque presentation ceremony, held at the Vitality Stadium, representative, Wendy Parrott, from the Youth Cancer Trust expressed their gratitude for the club’s generosity. “This donation from AFC Bournemouth’s community fund is not just about the financial assistance, but it’s also a message of hope and support for our young people,” said Wendy.
AFC Bournemouth’s Community Trust Manager, Steve Cuss, spoke about the club’s dedication to supporting the local community. “We are more than a football club; we are a family and a part of this wonderful community. Supporting the Youth Cancer Trust is a reflection of our commitment to helping those in need, and in this instance, those living with cancer.”
Youth Cancer Trust would also like to thank Joe Roach for his support of the charity.
