CONTRIBUTION: Berkhamsted FC donate cheque to High Five for Ollie charity 

 Published on: 25th November 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Berkhamsted FC recently donated a cheque of £300 to the High Five for Ollie charity on November 2. 

Previously reported in BerkhamstedNews, two-year-old Ollie Sweeny was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma just before his second birthday. 

Of the 100 children diagnosed with neuroblastoma each year in the UK, around 50 are diagnosed with the high-risk form of the disease.

Even if Ollie gets into remission, there is still a chance he will relapse.

If that happens his chances of survival drop to less than one in 10.

Bill Dance from Hertfordshire Football Association handed over the cheque to Jane Healy, who represented the charity, at the home game against Bedworth United last month.

The money originated from an FA charity fund which was awarded to The Comrades for reaching the final of the Herts Charity Shield final last season.

The club selected Solving Kids’ Cancer as its nominated charity with the contribution going to Ollie’s fund.

The Comrades vice-chairman, Benny Mitchell, also arranged for the club to provide items for an auction that took place on November 16, which raised a total of £2,100 and saw a signed Daniel Craig poster go for £140 and a Teddy Sheringham England shirt retained for a further auction in March.
