Support fundraising efforts at 12 Irish League grounds in 8 days

Posted : 21st October 2017 at 14:03:10

Linfield FC is pleased to ask supporters to support the following fundraising efforts by one of our supporters Johnny Lindsay.

Good afternoon - you may have possibly read an article in local media this week about this:- starting on Saturday 28th October, I am undertaking a challenge run which will span each of the 12 Irish League grounds (includes Portadown but not Warrenpoint). I will be commencing this next Saturday starting at Ards FC in Bangor, I will finish this the following Saturday 4th November at Ferney Park in Ballinamallard - the total distance will be approx 210 miles over 8 days.

I am running this for 2 charities - Camerons PANDAS Fund which is a charity my family set up for families of children affected by the same brain condition PANDAS my son Cameron has, and also Cure4Cam which is aiming to raise much needed funds for 11 year old Cameron Truesdale who is currently receiving treatment for a brain tumour in Mexico. Any monies raised will be split 50-50.

To raise the profile of this, I have engaged local supporters groups and I would very much appreciate if this could be advertised on your club websites, programmes etc - if at all possible I would like to take pictures at each ground when we arriveand ideally this would be with players, officials and supporters of each club if you could possibly provide any assistance in arranging this - this will undoubtedly be good PR for each club so would be mutually benefical in terms of also helping to raise the profile of what we are trying to achieve.

The times I plan to be at each ground is as follows (these are approximate but shouldn't be too far off).

Saturday 28th October

0730 - Bangor Fuels Arena
0945 - The Oval
1030 - Windsor Park
1130 - Solitude
1200 - Seaview
1400 - Loughshore Arena

I have attached below links for donations if this could possibly be shared via club websites etc, additionally there is a Public Facebook site 210 Miles - 12 Irish League Grounds in 8 Days which anyone is free to join which will be regularly updated with pictures etc.

If you need any further information please email me or phone me on 07886 361249.
