CYMRU fans have once again proven that they are not just skilled at belting out a good tune, but also have hearts of gold. As the team prepares to take on Croatia in Euro 2024 qualifier, fans took to the streets of Split to spread some Welsh love.
Local residents were treated to a surprise as a group of fans handed out daffodils, the national flower of Wales. A Croatian news website captured the heartwarming moment as the fans, who bought the flowers at a local market, made new friends with their generous gesture.
But the charitable spirit of the Welsh fans doesn’t stop there. Football charity Gôl Cymru will be making a donation of sporting vouchers worth €1000 to two organisations that run football teams for children with various disabilities. Children from these teams will be attending the big match on Saturday night and Gôl representatives will be there to donate the goods and see first-hand the excellent work they do.
And that’s not all – the fans will also be raising money to help underprivileged children in Split and around all future Cymru matches. Raffles will be taking place on chartered flights and at a pre-match fundraising party in Fabrique Pub. Chester Hartley, representing Gôl Cymru, expressed his gratitude to the fans for their support and for making this incredible initiative possible.
So, not only do Wales fans bring the party wherever they go, but they also bring kindness and generosity. It’s safe to say that they are not just some of the friendliest and happiest travelling supporters in world football, but also some of the most charitable.
