Former Players' Association fundraisers praised by Alzheimer's Society Cymru for their efforts

18th October

Fundraisers from the Swansea City Former Players' Association have been commended for their efforts in raising more than a thousand pounds for Alzheimer's Society Cymru.

Committee members of the FPA were joined by Swans head coach, Russell Martin, on their memory walk to raise money for the club's featured charity this season.

The total raised so far is £1,045. 

Sue Phelps, Wales’ operations director, said: “We are in awe of the incredible fundraisers at Swansea City's Former Players' Association who stepped out to support people living with dementia in Wales. 

“The pandemic has been catastrophic for people with dementia, with Alzheimer’s Society’s services, like our dementia connect support line, used over six million times since lockdown began in March 2020.

"Every pound raised from the walk will help Alzheimer’s Society provide information and support, improve care, fund research and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Swansea City's Former Players' Association for raising vital funds for Alzheimer's Society Cymru and making their memory walk such a brilliant success.”

The Just Giving page is live until October 29 and anyone wishing to donate can do so up until then.
