Chester FC fan and former Director Ed Jones is raising money for the British Heart Foundation, in honour of the late Garry Allen in September.

Ed will be walking the eight peaks challenge for the BHF, and was inspired to do so when we sadly lost one of our own, Garry Allen, during the Tranmere game earlier this month.

Speaking to the Chester Chronicle, Ed said: "I was absolutely saddened and shocked by the truly tragic passing of fellow Chester fan Garry Allen.

"Ever since I have been thinking about it and what I could do fundraising wise as a mark of respect and in memory of Garry.

"I am fundraising for different charities this year, and later in the year I am hiking the Great Wall of China to raise money for Alzheimer's Society, something that my dad was diagnosed with last March.

"I now also want to raise as much money as I can for the British Heart Foundation in memory of Garry and to help others in need of their support.

"Please if you feel you can donate any money, I'd be extremely grateful, and I know the British Heart Foundation would be also."
