Every penny raised at the bucket collection will go to the charity, to help them fund the amazing work they do.
Voting for the second fixture has closed and the Club are delighted to announce that Bone Cancer Research Trust received the most votes and will be hosting a bucket collection on Tuesday 1st January 2019 (Bradford City v Accrington Stanley).
