As Editor of ATFV I always try to support a new Swans manager and I like to put my money where my mouth is in that respect – and so today I launch the Dylan’s Pot of Gold scheme so I can get behind Graham Potter whilst supporting the Dylan Gunner’s Wish charity at the same time.
It’s a simple concept: for every single goal Potter’s Swans score during the 2018/19 season I will personally donate £1 to Dylan Gunner’s Wish.
Let’s hope that Potter does indeed play an attacking brand of football and lots and lots of Swans goals are scored over the season…alright, maybe not lots and lots…just lots…I’m not made of money ya know!!
ATFV has been a long time supporter of the Dylan Gunner’s Wish charity, dating back to when the charity first started as the Dylan Gunner Memorial Fund. It is a wonderful local charity that strives to help children with cancer and provide both financial and emotional support to those children and their families.
I could tell you more about Dylan Gunner’s Wish and the brave boy the charity was created to honour but I prefer to ask you to visit their brand new website instead >> Dylan Gunner’s Wish
The Dylan’s Pot of Gold scheme is similar to one we run last season. The Win A Few Bob for Maggie’s scheme also paid out a pound per goal and Maggie’s Cancer Care centre profited to the tune of £170 despite Bob Bradley’s side being rather less than prolific!
There’s a Just Giving page set up ( HERE ) and so anyone can make a one-off donation to support the charity, or indeed get into the spirit of things and contribute their own amount for every goal Potter’s Swans score. Even a single penny per goal will make a difference. As a local charity – set up and run by Dylan’s mother Jo and her fantastic friends – all the money goes to helping those in need rather than being swallowed up by “admin costs”.
Alternatively, you can make a donation by texting ATFV50 £1 to 70070.
So why not join in with a spot of #ATFVfundraising, back Potter’s Swans and support the superb Dylan Gunner’s Wish charity at the same time?
