City fan to lead out young Robins

Bristol City will help to raise awareness of Blood Cancer UK when the Under-23s take on Taunton Town on Tuesday night.

City fan Hollie Palmer, a Season Card holder in the Dolman Stand whose name sits on the Wedlock Wall, survived Hodgkin lymphoma last year and will lead the teams out at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium (August 10th, 7.45pm KO).

There will also be a raffle at the ground as both clubs look to make others aware of Hollie’s bravery and celebrate the fact she is now in remission, thanks to the amazing treatment the 25-year-old received having undergone chemotherapy treatment.

Blood Cancer UK is a community dedicated to beating blood cancer through research. One in 19 people in the UK will develop blood cancer, and over 250,000 people are currently living with the condition. There are over 100 types of blood cancer. Over the last 60 years, Blood Cancer UK have invested more than £500 million in research which has led to a long line of breakthroughs that have improved treatments and saved lives.

Hollie said: “A huge thank you to Taunton Town FC and Bristol City FC for their support and efforts to raise much needed awareness and funds for Blood Cancer UK.

“Until my diagnosis last year I knew nothing about blood cancer and without an incredible spot from my chiropractor, Sam Donaldson at Moose Hall Chiropractic & Wellness in Portishead, I would not have identified my symptoms. I urge everyone to familiarise themselves with the symptoms and if in doubt, please see your GP. Thank you for your support, because together we can be the generation to beat blood cancer.”

To help Hollie raise vital funds for Blood Cancer UK you can donate by visiting her JustGiving page here.

Tickets are still on sale for the pre-season friendly. They are priced at £10 for Adults, £8 Concessions and £5 for Under 18’s and can be purchased via Taunton Town’s Eventbrite site here. There will be no tickets on sale at the gate.

City v Taunton: Buse, Taylor, Allen, Williams, Soady, Morton, Owers, Benarous, Pearson, Francois, Britton. Subs: Lebel, Hutton, Henry, Kadji, Swaby, Smith.
