Colwyn Bay have chosen The Brain Tumour Charity and North Wales Superkids as their twin charities for the 2016-17 Evo-Stik Northern Premier League season.
Like most clubs, the Seagulls offered to support good causes every year and last season supported the Hope House Children’s Hospice. As well as raising funds, the club’s players, management and directors visited at Christmas to meet families using the hospice and leave presents.
Officials at Llanelian Road have opted to split their support between North Wales Superkids, which supports disadvantaged children and young people in the area through a number of different schemes, and The Brain Tumour Charity, which is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain cancer and helps people with brain tumours and their families.
Collection boxes for both charities have been installed in the clubhouse bar and the Seagulls are also looking forward to hosting a series of fundraising activities over the course of the EVO-STIK NPL First Division North season.
Colwyn Bay director and community officer Andrew Keep said: “The club and its supporters have long had a reputation for being both generous and open to the needs of others and we hope that they will again be able to support our two charities in the year to come.”
