A CHARITY football match has been organised to help raise money for a woman from Anglesey told by doctors that she only has months left to live following a cancer diagnosis.

In December, Amelia Page, 30, from Beaumaris, had been suffering with severe stomach pain and had been in and out of hospital having tests.

On December 19, she was told she had cancer in her ovaries. On January 22, following more tests, results revealed that it had spread to her stomach, bowel and pelvis.

Members of Llangoed Football Club have organised the football fundraiser to help raise money for Amelia and her family.

Taking place at the Gwynedd League side’s Tyddyn Paun home ground from 1.30pm this Sunday, the event will see footballers from all over the island come together as Llangoed take on #Teammeels.

Funds will mainly be raised through a raffle offering top prizes, including vouchers and deals for top restaurants based around Anglesey.

Corrie Bulloch, who helped organise the event, says the main aim is to raise money for both Amelia and her family.

"The reason for setting up the charity football match is to raise awareness of the recent tragic news of Amelia having terminal cancer," she said.

"We also want to fundraise to help Amelia get private treatment and enjoy her life to the fullest. She is the most positive, strong, caring and outgoing person and she loves playing sports, so a charity football game seemed like a great way to get everyone involved, whilst having fun but also raising money at the same time.

"Everyone in the community has been so supportive and all the local businesses have been great in donating raffles prizes too."

Another fundraising event on behalf of Amelia and her family, including an auction, will be held at Carreg Y Bran, Llanfairpwll, from 6pm on Saturday, February 23.
