12 Apr 2017 : Linnets fans to paint the town yellow in memory of Charlie

In line with other sections of the local community, fans of Runcorn Linnets are being asked to wear yellow this Saturday when the first team entertains Maine Road in The Hallmark Security League Premier Division.

This is in memory of former Runcorn Town junior footballer Charlie Lunt.

In March 2015, Charlie (then aged nine) was diagnosed with two types of cancer; neuroblastoma (usually found in under 5s) and pheochromocytoma (normally found in over 40s).

Charlie stayed true to his on the pitch nickname, 'Tank' and underwent months of chemotherapy battling against his illness.

Unfortunately a new site developed and the cancer further spread to his lungs.

Charlie 'Tank' Lunt sadly passed away on April 15th 2016 aged 10 after a year-long rollercoaster ride.

Charlie was a gentle soul and in his memory funds are being raised to help the three children's cancer charities, which supported Charlie and his family throughout their journey - James Apter Friendship Fund, CHICS (Children's Cancer Support Group) and the Owen McVeigh Foundation.

A bucket collection will take place at Saurday's match at The Millbank Linnets Stadium (kick off 3pm).

You can also donate at justgiving.com/crowdfunding/MarvellousCharlie. All donations will be greatly appreciated.
