In December 2021 at our Presentation night the EWFC had a raffle and it was decided that the person holding the ticket drawn first would win the fantastic hamper donated by Eilish Wright and the ticket holder would also choose the Charity we would donate all the raffle ticket money to.

That winner was our very own Kit Manager Mandy Norton.

Mandy at the time had a very close friend Frances Hanafin going through treatment for Ovarian Cancer and asked Frances to nominate a charity of her choice.

Frances has chosen Target Ovarian Cancer and the EWFC have now sent them a donation of £500.

Frances would like us to share a message with you all:

Hello, I’m Frances and I was diagnosed in September 2021 with Stage 3 Ovarian cancer. Thankfully I have received chemotherapy and surgery and received the best care. March 2022 is Ovarian cancer awareness month. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness of this cancer which can be difficult to diagnose.

Ladies and gents: please see the video below (only a few seconds long) and please make your wives, partners, girlfriends and friends aware – thank you so much.

Many thanks to Tony and Mandy Norton and England Walking Football Community for asking me to name a charity for this generous donation.
