Football fans on charity mission will stop at AFC Bournemouth’s Goldsands stadium

A TEAM of football fans will be stopping off at Bournemouth’s Goldsands Stadium as they aim to visit all 92 Football League grounds in 92 hours for charity.

The friends – Mike Harley, 31, Raza Rizvi, 32, Mike Ward, 32, and Cat Harley, 31 – all from Bristol, are doing the challenge in support of Invest in ME, an ME research charity, in April.

They are due to reach Bournemouth on the evening of Wednesday, April 16.

Their inspiration came from a childhood friend who has been battling the illness.

Mike said: “The idea is to reach the grounds at a time where we can give out information and maximise on raising the profile of ME, the need for research into the illness and the Invest in ME charity.

“It’s going to be a gruelling challenge but one, as football fans, we're all looking forward to.”
