Monday’s charity match for Cancer Research UK raised £7,976.
Tom Mackelden, who organised the fundraiser, announced the total on Twitter last night. More than 800 people came to the Gallagher Stadium to celebrate the life of his mother Tania and raise money for the popular charity.
Can’t believe it, the match last night raised £7976 towards @CR_UK which will go on my nearly £6000 marathon JustGiving page 👏👏
