There will be a bucket collection at Wrexham AFC at the weekend in memory of Evan Williams. 

The collection at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday 14th October will take place ahead of the Dragons’ game against Salford City to honour Evan from Wrexham, who died suddenly in his sleep 10 years ago, aged just 12.

His mum Jane has called on people attending the match to donate to the charity in recognition of help her family has received from Hope House since then.

Making a difference

Jane said: “I honestly don’t know what we would have done without the support we received from Hope House.

“Evan died so young, but we were so proud of him and so was everyone else who knew him.

“By donating on Saturday, you’ll be helping to make sure families like mine get the support they need through difficult times.”

In conjunction with the football club, a team of volunteers and fundraisers will be at Saturday’s match with collection buckets. 

Every pound donated by fans will be doubled as part of our Final Moments Matter campaign.

Our fundraiser Catrin Dowdeswell said: “On behalf of everyone at the hospices I would like to thank Jane for her ongoing support to ensure we can keep helping those who need us.

“We are also grateful to everyone at Wrexham AFC for allowing us to hold a collection in Evan’s memory and would like to thank fans in advance for their contribution to raise vital funds for our hospices.”
