The Swansea City All Stars stormed to victory in a charity football match against the Sinclair Group, which saw over £3,000 raised for a young mother, who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Nicole Blower, from Maesteg, had previously been working at Sinclair Volkswagen in Bridgend as a customer service advisor before suffering from severe headaches which eventually led to emergency surgery.
The 23-year-old was diagnosed with a serious brain tumour on the same day she underwent an emergency caesarean and now faces an intensive course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment.
The event was organised by Sinclair Volkswagen and Sinclair Van Centre to help support Nicole, her husband Stefan and new son, Harvey, during this difficult time.
Over 200 of Nicole’s work colleagues and friends attended the match which saw Swansea stars Colin Pascoe and Alan Curtis amongst the goal scores.
Clive Williams, operations manager for Sinclair Volkswagen explained: “We were so pleased that Nicole was able to attend the match.
“We are delighted with the generosity and support from everyone and donations are still coming in.
“This is such a traumatic time for Nicole and her family and our thoughts are very much with them. We hope these funds will go towards helping them enjoy some very special moments together.”
Nicole was 36 weeks pregnant when she collapsed with serious headaches. Her healthy baby boy, Harvey, was born prematurely by an emergency caesarean section and within 24 hours Nicole had undergone two major operations to remove the tumour.
