Admiral teams support MIND and Velindre Cancer Centre at Principality Stadium charity match

Admiral’s sporting stars have been given the chance to play at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium  and raise thousands of pounds for two leading charities.

Staff of Admiral Law (pictured above) took on a team representing the Admiral Group (pictured below) in the Invitational Match at the world famous venue in front of 200 fans.

Almost £3,000 has been raised to date for mental health charity MIND and the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff through the game which saw Admiral Law enjoy a 3-1 victory.

Man of the Match Joe Phillips scored two goals and said: “It was a real honour to play at the stadium let alone get Man of the Match and score at either end.

“It is something I will always remember and I would like to thank all involved for the opportunity.”

Admiral Law Fast Track Case Handler Jamie Dennis also starred in the game and said: “I have played at other professional stadiums before but none of them compared to playing at the Principality stadium.

“I was excited as soon as the game was arranged but I don’t think it actually hit me until I arrived at the stadium to set up. I walked out into the open arena and the feeling was just overwhelming.”

Donations are still being received following the game for both MIND and the Velindre Cancer Centre and can be made online here: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=AdmiralLawFC&isTeam=true

Admiral would like to thank the following for making the match possible: Pendle Sportswear for supplying the kits, Everson Sports & Trophies for the trophy and medals and the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) for use of the Principality Stadium.

Thanks also go to the Park Plaza Hotel, Nandos, Lush, Thorntons and Krispy Kreme.
