A charity football match between the Swansea City All Stars and Sinclair Van Centre and passenger cars takes place on Sunday 17th October helping to raise funds for a young mother who has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Nicole Blower, from Maesteg, underwent an emergency caesarean with her first child on the same day the 23-year-old was diagnosed with a serious brain tumour.

For the past four years Nicole has worked at Sinclair in Bridgend as a customer service advisor but now faces an intensive course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment to reduce the tumour.

Organisers of the event, Sinclair Volkswagen and Sinclair Van Centre, are inviting families and football fans to the match, which will star former Welsh International and Swansea City players, including, Colin Pascoe and Alan Curtis.

VIP tickets to Cardiff City, the Swans, signed sporting memorabilia and champagne will form part of a days’ raffle.

All proceeds from the event will go to help support Nicole and her family as Clive Williams, operations manager for Sinclair Volkswagen explained: “This is such a traumatic time for Nicole and her husband, Stefan. We felt such a strong desire to lend our support that we organised the charity match. Our aim is to have a sell out game.

“Stefan has given up work to look after Nicole and their newborn baby, Harvey, and we hope the funds raised will go towards helping them enjoy some very special moments together during this difficult time.”

The kick-off is 2.30pm at Bryntirion AFC on Llangewydd Road. Tickets cost £2 per person or £5 for a family and can be purchased on the day. If you would like to send a donation please email helpnicole@sinclairgroup.co.uk

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 she is now going through a programme of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
