Memorial Charity Football Match
Last year, mother and daughter Natalie and Kerys Roberts of Twyncarmel organised a special football match in memory of their beloved father and grandfather, Peter Roberts, who passed away after a brave battle with cancer.
The match took place on the 4th of June 2017 at Penydarren Park and raised a wonderful £1036.36 for Velindre Cancer Centre, where Peter was treated.
Natalie said: “The treatment dad received at Velindre meant we had him for longer. He was determined to stay around to see his great granddaughter Rosie smile and take her first steps, which he did, and for that we will be forever grateful. We wanted to raise money for Velindre to give others that opportunity.”
After the incredible success of last years event, the family have now decided to make this an annual event and will be holding this years charity football match on 3rd June.
