Bucket Collection Boost To Help Cardiff’s Homeless People

A bucket collection in aid of the Trust’s supported charity, The Wallich, raised £1,734 for its work with homeless people.

The collection before the Manchester United game was generously supported by Cardiff City fans attending the big game.

Michael Cowley of The Wallich wrote to Cardiff City and The Trust following the collection.

He said: “I am really pleased to let you know that we raised £1,734.69 which is an amazing amount for us as it will prevent around 50 instances of rough sleeping in Cardiff by paying for 50 bed spaces at our Cardiff Nightshelter.

“Thanks again to everyone at the club and Trust for providing this opportunity – we really do appreciate it and it will make a real difference.”

The Trust chose The Wallich as its charity for the current season after considering nominations from members.
