Fundraisers on the Dias sponsored walk, which visited Park Avenue in March, have broken the £10,000 mark ahead of a special auction that will see some great items up for grabs.
Last month Aberystwyth Town FC were delighted to welcome the family and friends of the Club’s Greatest Ever Goalscorer David “Dias” Williams to Park Avenue as guests of the Club.
Dias’ widow Margery, their sons Owain and Sion, visited as part of a four day sponsored walk in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support to commemorate what would have been Dias’ 70th birthday, and over 20 friends and family accompanied them, with onetime Black and Green midfielder Sion Meredith leading from the front.
The family have now completed the sponsored walk but they can still be sponsored here.
Sgorio produced a brief video showcasing the visit which can be viewed here.
Their fundraising efforts have paid off after it emerged that they have already beaten the £10,000 mark with John Meredith, one of the fundraisers, saying that everyone was “very pleased” to have received so much support.
Donations are still being taken and a special auction with a host of items will be taking place at Llety Parc on Friday, 3 May.
The event, which will see a sit down event with a buffet, will see items including a Welsh shirt signed by two of the country’s greatest ever number 11s - Gareth Bale and Ryan Giggs.
Anyone who would like to lodge any bids or get information about attending the event can email John at firstname.lastname@example.org.
