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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The efforts of everyone mean the kitty stands at over £46,000, well over half-way.
