All for good causes

Two Hereford United supporters, Amy Anning and Graham Hodges, are leaving Hereford early this Friday morning to be at Norwich Football Club by 8am in the first of twenty visits they are hoping to make to all the Premiership Football grounds.

By the end of Saturday they aim to have collected merchandise from every club.

Amy came up with the idea about two years ago going home from a Hereford United game. They expect to cover around 3,000 miles. and hope the traffic won't be too much of a problem.

The two supporters have arranged an auction at the Green Dragon Hotel in Hereford on May 11th to sell the merchandise and the Hereford United manager, Graham Turner, has agreed to host the auction which will start at 7pm.

"Every item that we sell, the profits will be split 50/50 between Cancer Research and Herefordshire's rural youth football clubs - the clubs that are forgotten on the map," Amy told BBC Hereford and Worcester.
