Over 1,000 raised on 'Show Your Support For Luce' Day

8th May, 2018

A long-awaited Toolstation NCEL Division One match that saw two brothers face each other collected 1,106.61 for charity and raise awareness of a disease that their mother has been battling since October.

Calan and Connor Rollinson were first due to don the strips of Worsbrough Bridge Athletic and Glasshoughton Welfare, respectively, for the match in February but bad weather meant it was delayed until last Monday (30th April).

The money raised from the clash that Glasshoughton won 2-0 to claim a play-off spot will be split across three charities - Leukaemia UK, Bloodwise and the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

Their "mam" Lucille, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia at the end of last year, was present for the game and embraced her devoted sons after the final whistle.

Both teams wore 'Showing Our Support for Luce' t-shirts during the warm-ups and 801.61 was collected on the night through raffle ticket sales and collection buckets.

300 has also been raised on the JustGiving page which remains open for donations - click here to go there.
