Donations still flooding in for Dylans Army

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

THE family of a young footballer who lost his life to sepsis have thanked generous villagers who have raised more than £20,000 in his memory.

Sarah and Phil Day lost their 12-year-old son, Dylan, in January and have since been overwhelmed by the efforts by fellow residents in Werrington and supporters from further afield.

On Friday afternoon, Sarah met with volunteers, supporters and fundraisers at The Windmill in Werrington to give thanks and show her appreciation.

Sarah said: “I was nervous about going out and chatting with people when I find it so hard at times. I’m shy enough as it is.

“I mean what do you say to these inspirational people who have raised so much money for us – how was I going to be able to thank everyone.”

The latest fundraising event in memory of Dylan was a charity auction night, which was organised by Jason and Victoria Swindalls and raised more than £1,500 in donations.
