Football fan to host charity match in memory of “Blues mad” dad

24 June 2019

A big-hearted 27-year-old will be hosting a football fundraiser this July, to help raise much-needed funds for a charity close to his heart. 

Martyn Williams is organising the charity football match in support of Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, after the charity cared for his dad, Lenny, in 2015. 

Lenny – who was a huge Birmingham City supporter – was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer five years ago and was told that he had just months to live. It was then that he was put in touch with Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, which provides vital care to local people who are living with life-limiting illness.
