Please help Ken reach his target

Money will aid Adam Stansfield Foundation
A month after completing his West Country charity trek, Ken Masters is appealing for Rovers fans to help him reach his £3,000 fundraising target.
The Rovers director has so far raised around £2,600 and is looking for fans to help him surpass his target.
Ken walked 180 miles between Bristol Rovers, Yeovil Town and Exeter City in memory of Adam Stansfield – a total of more than 61 hours on the road.
The walk coincided with Rovers visit to Yeovil at the start of April and Exeter’s trip to the Memorial Stadium the following week.
A month later he has had time to rest and recover, and although his feet and legs are fine, he is still having a bit of trouble with his back.
Unfortunately the charity’s Virgin Giving page was not set up in time, so Ken would encourage anyone waiting for that page to now donate money through contacting the club.
He said: “I would like to thank all those people who have already supported me and donated some money.
“It is for a great cause in memory of a great man, and I would ask that anyone who can afford to donate does so.
“Unfortunately we have not been able to get the donation site set up in time, but I would encourage anyone who was waiting for this site to donate some money through the club if they would still like to support me.”
The Adam Stanfield Football Foundation has been set-up to support and encourage participation in youth football across the South West region.
The Foundation has been formed in memory of Adam who died on August 10 last year at the age of just 31 from bowel cancer.
Ken, 66, whose wife has recently recovered from a major bowel operation, wanted to do something to raise money for the Foundation for some time.
Anyone wishing to donate to the cause should contact Kirsty Pugh at the club on 0117 9524003 or email [email protected]
