Fundraising for Kidsgrove Athletic Ravens’ manager Russ

Friday 6th April 2018

The manager of local grassroots football team Kidsgrove Athletic Ravens has unfortunately been diagnosed with terminal cancer and sadly hasn’t been given long to live. Russ is only 37 and has two young children. Parents of children from the team are hoping to raise some money in a bid to help Russ make a few lasting memories with his children. Please find the crowdfunding page here.

Russ is a big Stoke fan and has written a blog post, ‘A Letter from a dying Coach – The Last Team Talk’ which has gone viral, attracting attention from the Sentinel & the FA. Read the blog post here.

Any donation would be hugely appreciated.
