A FOOTBALL CLUB on Anglesey will be hosting a Boxing Day match in aid of a teenager living in the village.

Every year on December 26, Anglesey League side Llandegfan arrange a charity football game between players past and present to raise money for various organisations. This year, they have decided to gather funds for one of their own - 18-year-old Hanna Winiarska.

Hanna moved to Llandegfan from Poland six years ago with her mother Bogusia, father Wladek, and younger sister Julia.

After being diagnosed with Crohn's disease, she had paid regular visits to Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool for check ups.

During a routine procedure in 2017, her heart stopped beating for an hour and although doctors managed to revive her, the incident has left her unable to walk or talk.

Because of this, her daily life has become something of a struggle, and although she is now in a somewhat better position than what she has been in the past, Llandegfan FC officials say they are attempting to raise at least £250 on behalf of the family.

A spokesman said: "Our match has been set up to raise money to help cover any potential costs for treatment, wheelchairs and so on that Hanna and her family may have to pay for in future.

"As they are people who live in our village, we thought it was only right that we step in to help them out.

"If this year's Boxing Day match in honour of Hanna is successful, then we will be looking to organise further events for her during the summer in the years to come. So, please support our cause in any way you can."
