Bucket collection for Keenor statue appeal

A BUCKET collection for the Fred Keenor Statue Fund will be held at the Cardiff City Stadium before the home leg of the Semi-Final Play-Off game.

The Bring a Pound to the Ground – And More collection is being organised by members of the statue fundraising committee.

Statue project manager David Craig is appealing for fans coming to the game to volunteer as collectors by contacting him on d.craig43@ntlworld.com. They will need to be at the ground 90 minutes before the game – either on Saturday, May 8th, or on Tuesday/Wednesday of the week following to begin collecting inside the stadium.

David Craig, Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust Board member, said: “We know that money is tight because of the economic situation. But we hope supporters will give generously – at least £1 from every adult would be great, but more if they you can afford it.

“We need 14 volunteers to help collect donations for this very worthwhile cause so I would be grateful if they could get in touch as soon as possible.”
