Saturday night was a good night for charity


Gareth “Gaz” Ainsworth, the captain of Wycombe Wanderers sang at a charity gig held at Adams Park on Saturday 16th July, which raised about £3,200. These funds will help renovate a school in a remote and poor part of Brazil. as well as research into cancer. A donation will also be given to the Wycombe Wanderers Community Trust, which does so much good work every day in the local area.

The 38-year-old footballer (who used to sing in his own band) teamed up with local band Subrosa5 (a band that includes three die-hard Wanderers fans) and they entertained the packed Vere Suite with some classic rock covers with Ainsworth taking lead vocals.

The evening started off with a Hog Roast and later three comedians performed on stage as part of a fun-filled night which also included a fun quiz, DJ set, auction and raffle. All proceeds will go towards Cancer Research UK and Project Brazil, which last month saw volunteers renovating a school in a remote part of that country while also raising funds for clinical research back here into neuroblastoma.

One of those 20 volunteers and the organiser of this charity event, is former HT Junior now 23 year old Matt Cecil.  Matt now works as a Media Assistant at Wycombe Wanderers and after jumping out of a plane last year in aid of servicemen’s charity took on this new exciting challenge for 2011 by joining the Project Brazil team.
