Adie Roebuck on why this event is taking place and why you should get behind it:
“My cousin Leslie Martin sadly passed away on the 18th of November after the Sheffield Wednesday match at Hillsborough. Hillsborough stadium was place he loved to be watching the Owls and will be dearly missed by everyone. Leslie was also a very good and keen Boccia player a sport for the disabilities and Leslie won double Gold in the special Olympics a few months ago. Big things were ahead for the big man in Boccia and I am sure he will be throwing a few Boccia balls about up there. Leslie’s brother Kyle also plays Boccia and loves it and will carry on competing and I hope our Kyle will be successful and we give him and all his team mates the help they need and deserve. I am sure Leslie will be watching Kyle and the team and will never be far away. I want us all to raise as much as we can for Sheffield Boccia club so they can continue to get equipment, player fees, travel to tournaments etc. Sheffield Boccia club is run as a voluntary charity and deserves what we can do for them. The players of different disabilities love the sport love their friends and are doing something they love and makes them happy.”

“Leslie would be so happy on me doing this for his beloved Boccia club. So please help me out and raise some funds for this set of lads and lasses to continue to grow the sport and make Leslie proud.”
