Ammanford AFC proudly announces the outstanding success of its recent charity collection, held on Friday night, in support of local cancer patient Dominic, a courageous 13-year-old battling osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer undergoing chemotherapy.
In a remarkable display of solidarity, the Ammanford community, along with Dominic’s friends and family, united under the #donatetodom initiative.
Despite challenging weather conditions on a cold Friday evening, Dominic’s friends, led by Macey Jones, spearheaded a dedicated effort. The team stationed collection buckets at the gates, offered delicious cupcakes for sale, and conducted a raffle for a luxurious hamper at the Jac Lewis Centre, ultimately claimed by Abigail Nurse. The collective endeavours resulted in an impressive total of £810.
Fern Jones, Macey Jones’s mother, expressed her gratitude, stating, “The club community was amazing on Friday night. This marks the second successful fundraiser in a series, following last month’s £1600 raised during a Penyfan walk.”
Ammanford AFC’s First Team Manager, Gruff Harrison, Macey’s uncle, commended the remarkable achievement, stating, “To raise that much on a cold, winter’s night is an incredible effort. It’s the side of football that is more important than the game. As a club, we will always strive to assist anyone in need, and we are pleased to have contributed to such a worthy cause.”
The club extends its sincere appreciation to the first-team squad and the supporters of both Ammanford and Carmarthen Town for their unwavering support and generous contributions.
