On Saturday (28 April), we dedicated our game against Southend towards raising money for the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU), and we continued our support last night.
So far, a total of £3750.84 has been raised for the Bradford Burns Unit and there’s more to come.
PSBRU was founded in 1985 following the fire disaster at Valley Parade where we lost 56 fans and 258 were left injured. PSBRU will use the money raised to conduct research in scarring and wound healing to give patients the best outcome.
Volunteers gave up their time to walk around The Northern Commercials Stadium before the game on Saturday to collect your donations. The Supporters Board have informed fans that the initial count stands at £1,000 and there’s more money to count.
Another volunteer who has given up a lot of their time, is Georgia Thornton, aged 11. Georgia has been creating Claret and Amber ribbons to raise money for the Burns Unit. So far, she has raised £2,750.84
Georgia created the ribbons for her Nanna Sue’s funeral in November 2017. People tried to give money to Georgia for the ribbons, but instead, she decided to donate the money to the Burns Unit.
