CARDIFF City Football Club have long supported Ty Hafan children’s hospice – and they are asking Bluebirds fans to do the same by texting CITY27 £3 to 70070 during the home match against Hull tonight (Tuesday, March 13).

Cardiff’s players and managers have been visiting the hospice near Sully regularly in recent years, meeting some of the amazing children, young people and families who spend time there.

Nine-year-old Rhys has been a Cardiff City season ticket holder for a numbers of years and, along with his dad Anthony, mum Natalie and little sister Carys, rarely misses a game. He has even been a Cardiff City mascot.

Rhys has an underlying neurological condition, severe epilepsy, chronic lung disease, asthma, reflux and global developmental delay, and is not expected to live beyond the age of 19. Despite his health problems he is a happy and sociable boy who just loves watching football.

To help Ty Hafan continue to help children like Rhys and their families, Cardiff City have initiated a number of fundraising events over the years and hope that their loyal supporters will join them in this latest campaign.

Text CITY27 £3 to 70070 during half time at the Hull fixture to donate.
