Hay St Mary’s hosted a fundraising day for Cardiac Risk in the Young, in memory of Kieran Joyce

A local football club has hosted a fundraising day in aid of a crucial cardiac charity.

On Saturday, July 30 Hay St Mary’s Football Club hosted their annual charity matches with Cheltenham Town Development Centre along with Builth Wells Reserves and Newent Football Club. The matches at Forest Road were played in aid of the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young, in memory of Kieran Joyce.

The popular Year 11 pupil was a talented sportsman. He played for Hereford FC’s under-16s side, having previously played for Hay St Mary’s up until he was eight years old.

On Saturday, a presentation took place of the new defibrillator kindly donated by the local people of Hay and Special Metal Wiggins Ltd Community Fund.

A wonderful day was had by all and the club would like to pass on a huge thank you to all that supported on the day and donated to The Kieran Joyce Memorial Fund.

Hay St Mary’s would like to thank the following for their support in making the day so successful:

• Andrea and Gareth Joyce
