Football fan holds charity match in his gran’s honour

Have your say

A football fan will hold a charity match tomorrow to raise money in memory of his late grandmother.

Gareth Day, aged 29, of Hoyland, Barnsley, hopes to raise plenty of cash for Cancer Research UK in memory of Josephine Whittingham, who died of throat cancer exactly a year ago tomorrow.

The game kicks off at 10am at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough Stadium.
