THERE will be a charity bucket collection in aid of the Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal before Batley Bulldogs’ next home game against Bradford Bulls on March 13.
The collection is being carried out in memory of Steven Jordan, who was a lifelong supporter of the Bulldogs.
Steven passed away last August, aged 57, following a battle with cancer and the collection is just one of a number of fundraising events being arranged this year by his family, friends and also colleagues at the John Cotton Group in Mirfield.
Steven was always grateful to the team at St James’ Hospital in Leeds for the treatment and care they gave him at the end of his life and now his family believe it is only right to raise money for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal who in turn help to fund St James’ institute for Oncology.
Steven’s family and friends have also started a Just Giving page (www.justgiving.com/steven) for anyone who wants to donate to this worthy cause.
All money raised will directly benefit cancer patients in this excellent hospital by funding specialist medical equipment, research, patient home comforts, arts and gardens projects.
